"We are just as proud of the team off the field and its impact in the Rochester community. Med City FC players, coaches and staff volunteered in the community throughout the season, including reading to and playing with kids at the schools in May, helping at churches and serving food at the Ronald McDonald House, building houses with Habitat for Humanity and helping out at the Rochester Boys & Girls Club."
