MLS WORKS names Timbers FC the Humanitarian of the Month for May

 

Demonstrating exactly how the game of soccer can make a difference, the Portland Timbers joined forces with Make-A-Wish Oregon to create a very special day and helped to make Atticus Lane-Dupre's wish come true. Over 3,000 members of the Timbers Army were on hand to show their support as Atticus' Green Machine beat the Timbers in a scrimmage at JELD-WEN Field. The day began and ended with behind-the-scenes access and unique experiences for Atticus and his teammates. Learn more.

Congratulations to the Timbers!
