Remembering Quakes’ opening-day rally to raise money for coronavirus relief

All you need to do is post a rally cap picture and tag it.

In what feels like was both just a few weeks past and forever ago, the San Jose Earthquakes opened the 2020 MLS regular season with a rousing 2-2 draw against Toronto FC. Why rousing? The Quakes went from 2-0 down in the second half to get a rally going, with Andy Rios kick-starting proceedings with his own acrobatic finish to make it 2-1, before Oswaldo Alanis made a stellar impression on his MLS debut with a walk-off free kick equalizer.

It was a great result in the end, and not to make you feel bad about the soccer stopping due to the coronavirus pandemic, instead I want to direct your attention to a fundraiser for coronavirus relief that our partner DraftKings and the United Way are doing, as they’re committed to raising up to $1 million in this fight.

For every person who shares their “rally cap” (flip your cap inside out and put it back on) on social media with the #DKRally hashtag, DraftKings will donate $1 to the United Way’s coronavirus relief efforts until we reach a $1 million goal. The money will help United Way across a range of needs from food banks to medical services to unemployment support.

The campaign is live through April 7.
