Youth players, coaches and parents have a new tournament to look forward to–one which will make a difference in the life of many right here at home.
Soccer and breast cancer advocacy are coming together for the first time in San Diego. The Kickin’ It Challenge, a two-day soccer tournament that will donate all proceeds to the San Diego Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation, will be held on June 23 and 24 at the Frances Ryan Park in Escondido, California.
The tournament is the first of its kind in San Diego, hosted by the Poway Vaqueros, with fields provided by the City of Escondido. More than 120 youth soccer teams are expected to "Unite in the Fight" against breast cancer.
The tournament hopes to raise at least $20,000 for the San Diego Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation and to show young soccer players how to make a direct impact in their community while doing something they love.
City of Escondido, E7 sports, Puma, Soccer Loco, and other organizations are sponsors of the tournament. Tournament team winners will receive the Pink Pride Award, given by the tournament directors, for the best showcase of breast cancer awareness and support.
Teams must register at the website provided below by May 29.
