In a collaborative effort to combine sport and service and improve lives and communities at the grassroots level, the Colorado Rapids participated in MLS WORKS League-wide Week of Service leading up to Earth Day.
Projects for the 2019 season involved planting trees in Washington Park & Rosamond Park in partnership with Denver Parks & Recreation and building a community garden in Lakewood in partnership with Denver Urban Gardens.
In conjunction with Greener Goals Week of Service, MLS has collaborated with adidas to support Parley for the Oceans. During Week 8 matches in 2019, MLS players wore special adidas kits, built of technical yarns made using Parley Ocean Plastic™. The match-worn and autographed kits were auctioned off with proceeds benefitting Kroenke Sports Charities.
