On October 19, 2019, Napa Valley 1839 FC walked out on the field to play the New York Cosmos with a singular and powerful message – ENOUGH.
To honor the lives lost in just two years of mass shootings, the names and cities are inscribed in the jersey. The jerseys were also sold to fans near and far, and have raised more than $30,000 towards Alaina’s Voice Foundation.
In 2019, the foundation was the recipient of nearly $20,000 from Rock the Ride, a benefit event in Yountville, CA for gun violence prevention. Rock the Ride began on a 2018 Napa Valley bike ride with Congressman Mike Thompson (CA-05), Napa County Sheriff John Roberston and Event Producer Rebecca Kotch, upon the aftermath of the Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Parkland, FL, and the Pathway Home tragedy in Yountville, CA, as both shootings were within three weeks of each other.
The orange banding represents the color of gun violence, and also serves as a bold bright signal for vehicles traversing the same roads as cyclists. Men’s and Women’s styles are available.
Net proceeds of the sale of the jersey and bib will be directed to Alaina’s Voice Foundation.
