The Lady Flames, Lee University's elite women's soccer team, is hosting a soccer tournament on Saturday, to raise funds for the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, whose local care center, Hatch’s House of Hope, provides children and their families with the tools needed to cope and thrive at the onset of pediatric cancer. The four teams participating in the tournament will each represent a local family affected by pediatric cancer.
The event, beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Lee University women’s soccer fields, is designed to be a night of fun for the whole family and, in addition to soccer, will also include prizes and low-cost refreshments.
Lee University Lady Flames soccer coach, Matt Yelton said, "We are excited once again to be a part of a wonderful event that benefits a very special organization in the Austin Hatcher Foundation. Kickin' it for Kids with Cancer has become something that is very important to our team and coaching staff and is one of the cornerstone pieces of our season in which every member of our squad takes great pride in. We believe that our efforts are a small part of doing something that impacts the lives of so many different families that are battling pediatric cancer and hope that we will have the support of many others as we take a night to Kick it for some really special kids and families."
