This community program partners Michelin tire dealers with local soccer organizations nationwide. The dealers purchase customized soccer balls that are redeemed with certificates sent to the soccer organization. For every Michelin tire sold to the general public at Ron’s Tire & Brake during the 30-day soccer ball giveaway, $2 is donated to the soccer organization.

The donations are used to provide scholarships, uniforms and other equipment for the soccer leagues.

“Whether you have done this program for one year or more than 13, you’re going to have a blast,” said Ronald Borchardt with Ron’s Tire & Brake. “Kids love it, parents love it, and all of us at the dealership really enjoy being able to interact with the soccer community. There’s nothing better than seeing the direct positive impact it has on everyone involved.”

“Michelin is always looking for unique ways to give back, and the perfect partnership is between our dealers and community soccer leagues,” said Jason Strand, Michelin marketing manager. “We’ve had great success with this program over the past 13 years and we look forward to many more.”
