Mayor Wilfred Rosas greeted the team at the Dunkirk boardwalk. "Welcome to the city of Dunkirk, we stand so proud to welcome you to this city. It's important that we get this message out. In communities all over the world, and Dunkirk is no exception, we have racism and we have hate."

Santiva presented Mayor Rosas with a certificate of appreciation for the city of Dunkirk.
