PHOENIX, Arizona (March 14) – Phoenix Rising FC and Equality Health have aligned for the sixth consecutive season with the Phoenix-based whole-health delivery system serving as the presenting sponsor of the club’s 2023 season. The partnership will share health education messaging throughout Rising’s fanbase with support from Equality Health, and Equality Health Foundation will bring healthy activities and well-being resources directly to the South Phoenix community.
“We are committed to bringing health awareness and resources to the South Phoenix community, and we are proud to partner with Phoenix Rising FC to expand our impact,” said Hugh Lytle, Founder and CEO of Equality Health.
Equality Health will also support Arizona’s only professional soccer team as the presenting sponsor of Health and Wellness Night, scheduled for Saturday, May 13 (7:30 p.m.), vs. Hartford Athletic at 38th St/Washington. Even when Rising is on the road, Equality Health will be there, presenting the broadcasts on Arizona’s Family (CBS 5, 3TV and Arizona’s Family Sports & Entertainment Network) and ESPN+.
When the club is home in Phoenix, Rising and the Equality Health Foundation will collaborate on serving the local community. Equality Health Foundation and Rising Phoenix FC will host at least four soccer clinics in partnership with local school districts and pro soccer coaches. The clinics will provide soccer drills and Phoenix Rising players will assist and interact with children in South Phoenix. During the clinics, health education and screenings will be available onsite for the families of the youth soccer players.
“Equality Health has been an excellent partner of Phoenix Rising since 2018,” said Rising President Bobby Dulle. “Supporting the local community is very important to both of us. Now that we’re home in Central Phoenix, we cannot wait to combine our efforts and improve quality of life in the city we share.”
