Stephen Curry, Major League Soccer Players Fight Against Malaria

April 25th is World Malaria Day. Every 60 seconds, a child in Africa dies from malaria, according to Nothing But Nets. Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness and funding to fight malaria. Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry and sports writer Rick Reilly recently traveled to Tanzania with Nothing But Nets to personally make an impact. Malaria is transmitted by parasite-infected mosquitos often in tropical regions.

Major League Soccer players are taking a lively approach to show their support for the cause. Today, 11 current and former MLS players will join the Online Soccer Academy World Juggle-A-Thon. Soccer players of all ages are invited to join the MLS players by juggling at 6pm today. Among those participating are Real Salt Lake defender Chris Wingert, teammate Nat Borchers and midfielder Yael Averbuch.
