 “To me, soccer is so much more than a ball and two goals; it connects people from all of the corners of the world.” – Unknown Author
 
 
 
Tyler Ruthven, Atlanta United FC
 
Tyler Ruthven attended Roswell and Milton High Schools and played club soccer for the Concorde Fire Elite, before beginning his college soccer career at the University of San Francisco. He transferred to the University of South Carolina as a sophomore in 2007, where he received numerous awards and accolades, being named Conference USA Newcomer of the Year and to the All-Conference USA Third Team and the NSCAA All-South Third Team in 2007, and collecting First-Team All-Conference USA honors and being named to the NSCAA All-South Third Team as a senior. During his college years Ruthven also played in the USL Premier Development League with Colorado Rapids U23's and Chicago Fire Premier. 
 
Ruthven turned professional in 2010 when he signed with the Harrisburg City Islanders of the USL Second Division. He made his professional debut on July 3, 2010 in a game against the Charlotte Eagles, and scored his first professional goal on July 10 in a 3-2 victory over the Real Maryland Monarchs. After playing with several professional teams, Ruthven joined the Atlanta United FC in August 2018.
 
He will talk to us about what it is like to play competitive sports and about the soccer craze that has become such a major part of our lives.

Rotary Club of Alpharetta
 
 
 

 

Join the Mayor of Alpharetta and a lively crowd of runners and walkers on August 23 at City Hall for the annual Mayor’s Challenge 5K Race.

 
 
It’s basically a huge block party.  A night of food, music and friendly competition.  Held in concert with Alpharetta’s renowned Food Truck Alley! The Alpharetta Mayor's Corporate Challenge 5K Race attracts thousands of residents, corporate employees and runners.  This year's venue is City Park behind Alpharetta City Hall.  The new location is attracting interest from large corporate sponsors who desire a private company picnic experience while enjoying Alpharetta's most exciting night of the year.  
 
 

Rotary Club of Alpharetta donated $7,500 to HomeStretch in support of the great work they do in the North Fulton Community.  They also completed 3 projects for HomeStretch in order to get an apartment ready for a new family to move in.  On Tuesday, September 20 and on Thursday, September 22 from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, fellow Rotarians painted the interior of the apartment. And on Saturday, September 24 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Rotarians cleaned the inside and outside of the apartment.  

Rotarian Karen Nolan said, “Alpharetta Rotarians are happy to volunteer their time and resources to give families in our community a hand up through HomeStretch.  HomeStretch families are proud hardworking members of our community and Homestretch offers them the support they need to ensure they have the opportunity for a bright successful future.”
 
HomeStretch is an organization that addresses some of the root causes of homelessness in our community.  It is one of the few programs in the country that not only provides housing but works with the families to help stop the cycle of homelessness.  The Rotary Club of Alpharetta annually sponsors an apartment and a family at HomeStretch.  In addition, Alpharetta Rotarians serve as Financial and Life Mentors for the family.   
 
President of Alpharetta Rotary, Jason Binder stated, “Our club is very proud to support HomeStretch not only with money but with fellow Rotarians participating together to make sure an apartment is clean and freshly painted and ready for a new family to move in soon. HomeStretch provides valuable services and support to members of the community and on behalf of Alpharetta Rotarians, I look forward to our continued work with Homestretch in the coming years.”
