Clean sheet total means $24,000 donation to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta

Atlanta United's commitment to giving back to the local community is one of its primary platforms and missions, and nowhere is that more apparent than its partnership with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Before the season started, the club committed to donating $2,000 to the organization for every clean sheet the team recorded this season. Thanks to a late surge up the defensive standings, the team finished with 12 clean sheets on the season. That means a total of $24,000 will be donated to  Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation for autism research.

Children’s is the official pediatric healthcare system and the official pediatric sports medicine program of Atlanta United. One of the nation’s largest pediatric healthcare systems, Children’s is home to a nationally ranked sports medicine program that uses leading-edge research to keep athletes, from pre-teens to adolescents, in top physical shape.
