STYSA & Go4theGoal LaceUp4Cancer
Over the September 28th & 29th weekend, South Texas Youth Soccer teamed up with Go4theGoal to showcase a statewide weekend of support to raise funds and awareness for kids battling cancer right here in Texas.
September 2019 was the second annual partnership for South Texas and the support did not disappoint. Overall, South Texas ended up raising $2,079.00 total from all purchases that will be directly dispersed to programs treating pediatric cancer within South Texas!!
Go4theGoal's Athletic Coordinator Nick Kellerher stated:
"That much money is sure to make a big difference in the lives of kids battling cancer and their families in Texas!! When it comes to financial support and help with things like meals, transportation, help with bills, and other everyday expenses, those funds will go a long way."
As part of Go4theGoal’s Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer© initiative, teams were encouraged to purchase gold laces or any other Go4theGoal gear to help raise funds and awareness for the cause. Gold laces were $5/pair with $4 from every pair (and 100% of any additional donation) being used to provide financial support for local kids battling cancer.
South Texas would like to thank any participating teams or supporters of this past weekend's event by showcasing team photos here on our website and to share on Social Media. If your team participated, please tag South Texas Youth Soccer & Go4theGoal on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram & email Noah Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a chance at additional South Texas Youth Soccer give-a-ways!!
Support for Go4theGoal can be year round with your backing and South Texas looks to showcase the event again next fall, raising even more funds for pediatric cancer research!
