MARANA, AZ -

Mountain View High School's Football Team Journey To Ireland is underway.

"STAY UP WITH THE LIONS" marked the first major fundraiser for the team. The marathon event began 7:00pm Saturday night and went 24 hours with the team and supporters walking laps around the school's stadium track to fulfill committed pledges and donations.

The event was highlight by a LIONS KIDZONE, live music, entertainment and a variety of cuisines throughout the night. Local restaurants, entertainers and suppliers donated services and products to support the event.

"Mountain View High School is deeply connected and committed to our military, and throughout our fundraising efforts we will be donating back to our service men and women," said Mel Greenberg, coordinating consultant to G.I.F.T. 2014.

In cooperation with local military- purchased luminaries surrounded the field, with a portion of the proceeds from these sales being donated back to our military.

Global Football produces G.I.F.T. 2014 and Mountain View HS is the only Arizona High School to be invited this year.

"I am thrilled, as are all my friends in Ireland who are connected with the G.I.F.T. 2014 and Croke Park Classic, to have Mountain View on board," said Patrick Steenberge, President, Global Football.

"I must say that your school has been among the best organized, and most energetic. Keep up the great work; it will be well worth it."
