Soccer Programs To Compete In Cancer Benefit Tournament
March 7, 2005
Baltimore, Md. - The Loyola College men's and women's soccer teams will play in the Inaugural Shut-Out Cancer College Soccer Classic on April 2 at the Northrop Fields in Columbia, Md. The Greyhounds are two of 18 men's and women's Division I programs to participate in the philanthropic soccer tournament.
Games will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Northrop Fields and featured evening contests will take place at Reservoir High School. The Loyola women face George Mason at 9:30 a.m. while the men play George Washington at the same time. At 1:30 p.m., the men play Towson while the women face Georgetown.
Proceeds from this event will be split between the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and the Howard County General Hospital's Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource and Image Center in Columbia, both non-profit organizations supporting individuals affected by cancer.
The Kicks Against Breast Cancer Intercollegiate Women's Soccer Tournament was established in honor of Claudia Mayer, a friend of tournament Director Louise Waxler, who passed away in 1996 after a two-year battle with breast cancer. Since the inception of the tournament eight years ago, donations and fundraising by participating teams has totaled more than $295,000. Last year's event raised $44,000 alone
This year's event has added a men's component to the weekend by including the First-Annual Shut-Out Cancer Men's College Soccer Festival with additional proceeds to benefit the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults. Combining these two events will create the Inaugural Shut-Out Cancer College Soccer Classic, a weekend of college soccer where 16 of the best men's and women's college soccer programs will compete, yet also work together to raise money and awareness for cancer.
