Why?America SCORES St. Louis made history last year at the first annual Great St. Louis Soccer Dribble, when 428 soccer dribblers came together to set a Guinness World Record to benefit SCORES youth in St. Louis. But the United Nations has defeated our record with 2,068 dribblers in the Gaza Strip.

Who?Ten sites from all over the country: America SCORES Atlanta, America SCORES Bay Area, America SCORES Chicago, America SCORES Cleveland, America SCORES Denver, America SCORES Milwaukee, America SCORES National Office in New York, America SCORES Portland, America SCORES Seattle, and America SCORES St. Louis
