ZebStrong

Zeb’s Foundation was created to carry out Zeb’s vision to touch lives all over the world.  Our purpose is simple: help people and give soccer balls away.

We currently work with organizations locally and overseas to share the gift of soccer with people of all ages.  From providing inner city youth with soccer gear to sponsoring World Cup games in prison tournaments in Kenya, Zeb’s Foundation is always looking for practical ways to minister to the needy.

WORLD CHANGER

The first soccer ball was given out in December 2015 to kids in a Refugee Camp in northern Kenya. The “ball” of fabric the kid in front is holding is what they were currently using as a ball. #ZEBSTRONG

Zeb’s story

Every so often you run into one of those kids who simply has a huge heart, is full of life and kind of mischievous.  Zeb Montgomery was one of those kids.

Zeb loved his family, loved to have fun, and he loved people.  If you had ever met him, he would have welcomed you into his life.  He was very caring, compassionate, charismatic, and charming.  

Zeb was also a generous giver, a creative artist, a team player, and a gifted & talented athlete.

All of these characteristics showed up wherever Zeb was but especially when he was playing the game he loved – soccer.  Soccer was that game and it was a huge part of his life. He was passionate about it. Zeb advanced to the select level.

It was the week following Mother’s Day in May of 2014 at the age of 13 that Zeb was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  He battled cancer for 18 months and never stopped believing he was going to win the fight.
