On February 18th Grand River Soccer Club teamed up with volunteers from the district soccer association and local referees to give back to the community. The Club hosted the first KICK4ACURE adult co-ed charity soccer tournament in support of the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre and the Cancer Research Society.
The tournament was an exciting day for everyone involved. 26 teams participated in the daylong event which was held at the Com-Dev Indoor Soccer Park and Core Lifestyle and Recreation Complex. Organizers emphasized their Fair Play philosophy and stressed the importance of fun and friendship which factor heavily in all of the Club’s leagues and activities.
The competition included many local players and teams from beginner to advanced. It also attracted several soccer enthusiasts from London, Hamilton, Guelph, Toronto, and even Thunder Bay. All of whom share a passion for the game and contributing to a cure. Dangercatz, led by U of W standout Robbie Frank, took the Premier Division title in a penalty kick shoot-out over The Untouchables while the Natural Born Thrillers held off The Huns to be crowned Championship Division winners.
We would like to thank our major sponsors for the day: The Sports Link, Hercules Mina Excel Mortgage, Natural Sound, Booty Camp Fitness, Minuteman Press, Pharmasave, and PC Depot.
Overall the event was a success with $11,918.58 raised through entry fees, pledges, and a raffle. Next year’s tournament is scheduled for February 17, 2014. The Club is also planning a 24-hour summer soccer marathon. For more information please visit www.kick4acure.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
