Get Earthquakes Fit is a five week program that promotes a healthy lifestyle. Students are taught ten fun games that will get them moving during lunch or at home with friends or family. They are encouraged to play these games at least twenty minutes a day. Once the five weeks are done and the program is completed, we reward the participants by having an Earthquakes player visit their school and speak to them. 

This week Shea Salinas visited Millbrook Elementary School in San Jose. He spoke about his personal lifestyle and how he got to where he is today by eating healthy, exercising and studying for school. He juggled on stage and played games with the students. All participants received an autographed player card and a program certifcate.

While we host our own international friendly vs. Honduran-side C.D.S. Vida tonight at Buck Shaw, two of our mainstays, Wondolowski and Bernardez, will face off in Miami. 

Wondo and the USMNT take on Muma and Honduras at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida tonight. While this match is only an international friendly for Klinsmann's squad, they're looking to get back to their winning ways after a late goal from Ecuador put a damper on their friendly last week. Meanwhile, Los Catrachos are looking to redeem themselves against CONCACAF opponents as well - coming off of a 2-0 loss against Mexico last week. 

The match which kicks off at 5 p.m. PT will be aired live on ESPN, WatchESPN and Unimas.

5,000 fans will receive farewell to Buck Shaw pins presented by Cosmopolitan Catering among entry. Fans will have the opportunity to collect the other four pins in the series by donating $1 to the Earthquakes Community Fund. Fans will then reach into a bucket to randomly select another pin, which will be one of four limited edition "Buck Shaw Memories" pins. These include Wondo's first hat-trick, Ramiro Corrales' last game, Lenhart Wig Night and a 40th anniversary pin. 

If fans donate $10 or more, they will receive all five collectable pins. Donations will only be collected until kick-off. Cosmopolitan Catering will announce the donation amount and present the check to President Dave Kaval at halftime. 

Tickets are still available for this match here.
