The organization provides cleats to young athletes.

| March 19, 2012

SUDBURY, Mass. – Christopher and Matthew Noon, principal owners of Noon Turf Care in Hudson, Mass., have founded a new nonprofit organization “Cleats by Noon,” a charity organization that assists with providing youth athletes with new athletic cleats on an as needed basis.

Their first donation was to the Lincoln Sudbury Regional High School girls and boys lacrosse teams this March. All team members will receive a brand new pair of athletic cleats at no cost.  Chris and Matt found it appropriate for L-S to be their first donation as they both went to L-S and played on sports teams there more than 15 years ago.

As past athletes, they are sensitive to the rising costs and fees associated to even a high school such as their own in an affluent town. They know there are plenty of players that need the donation to alleviate some of the financial burden of being a Varsity athlete. They realize they have enough things to worry about as they have academics and extracurricular activities to also worry about. They did not want to single out any players so they decided to donate to the entire team.

“This is just the beginning of donations from Cleats by Noon,” said Chris Noon.  “We plan to continue to donate to local high schools and youth organizations and find a process to get their cleats into the hands of young athletes that truly need help financially so they can focus on what they love, their sports.”

After high school,  Chris went on to play Division 1 soccer at Seton Hall University and Matt went on to attend Boston College and run a business through college.
