Former Sounders FC star Steve Zakuani remains close to the game. Not only is he part of the Sounders' broadcast team, he's returning to the pitch next weekend to support a cause he loves: helping at-risk teens succeed in school, and life.

Steve previewed his upcoming annual Zakuani and Friends charity soccer game, featuring a host of interesting sports stars, including Beast Mode himself, former Seahawks (now Oakland Raiders) running back Marshawn Lynch. The game benefits a new initiative launched by Steve's Kingdom Hope foundation called #project50. Its goal: to give out 50 scholarships over the next 5 years.

The 2017 Zakuani and Friends game takes place from 6:00pm - 8:00pm Sunday, July 2nd at Starfire Sports (14800 Starfire Way, Seattle, WA 98188). Event information and tickets can be found here.
