"A Ball Can Change Your Life" - Kevin Carroll Katalyst

At the 2006 Homeless World Cup in Cape Town, South Africa, those inspirational words echoed across the street soccer pitch and into the hearts and minds of the more than 48 nations participating at the Homeless World Cup. Kevin's energy brought players from Canada to Chile, and Poland to Portugal to their feet in celebration of soccer, sport and life.

Kevin remains an active supporter and advocate of the Homeless World Cup through his sponsorship of Gomo Tong Football Club representing Uganda in Cape Town and again in Copenhagen in 2007, and spreading the mantra from his personal story that, “A Ball Can Change Your Life.”

This year, Kevin graciously extended his support to the Homeless USA Cup as a sponsor and supporter of the Inaugural USA Cup.

Among his many experiences and talents, Kevin is an author, and agent for social change. He travels the world, and helps people harness the power of sport and play as a vehicle for chasing and achieving their dreams. As an author, Kevin has achieved incredible success with his first book, Rules of The Red Rubber Ball (ESPN Books). Discover Your Inspiration and Chase it for a Lifetime (ESPN Books) will be released in 2008.

We want to thank Kevin for his friendship and for inspiring all of us to realize that a ball IS changing lives. Check out his musings at: during the Homeless USA Cup and also, his prose at ESPN’s Page 2:
