Head Coach of the Lee Lady Flames, Matt Yelton, said, “We are very excited this year to host the 4th annual Kickin’ It for Kids with Cancer event to benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. 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."
