Christian Chacon lives the Ultimate Earthquakes Adventure

If you ask Christian Chacon's mom Alma how long her son has been an Earthquakes fan, she'll respond without hesitation: "since birth." The 14-year-old freshman at Silver Creek High School has followed the Quakes for as long as he can remember and has grown up playing the world's game. But, in February of 2013, he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblast Leukemia and could no longer play the sport he loved.

Thanks to some great work by the 1906 Ultras and the Austen Everett Foundation, the Quakes heard about Christian's story and wanted to support him in his fight against cancer. The Earthquakes were honored to give Christian the Ultimate Earthquakes Adventure. Watch as Christian becomes an Earthquake for the day and the team's co-captain for our match against the Colorado Rapids.
