STRONGER TOGETHER

Our Mission 

The Cancer Kickers Soccer Club is a non-profit organization committed to providing Comfort, Community, and Connections to children 18 years old and younger fighting cancer. We all become a little stronger, work a little harder, and find courage when we are surrounded by love and support.

We achieve these goals by approaching our opponent as a team. Together we share the same jersey and sport our own unique numbers. Through community, we ensure that no child is left to play alone on the field, and we empower our teammates and their families with the resources and support that they need. At the end of the day, Cancer Kickers Soccer Club is about more than simply sharing the same colors on a jersey — it’s about being part of a team.

COMFORT, COMMUNITY, AND CONNECTIONS

Our Values

COMFORT

No child or family affected by cancer should have to navigate their journey alone. We're committed to providing support for our teammates and their families in order for them to feel special, no matter the battle.

COMMUNITY

Cancer should never be isolating. We're dedicated to providing a foundation where children with cancer and their families know they can be part of something greater than the adversary they face.

CONNECTIONS

Together we are stronger. By building a resilient network of children, families, and those with a passion for our team, we're able to exude strength and collectively come together as one.

BIG FAMILY, BIGGER TEAM

Our Story

Our story is the story of a family that loves giving. The Cancer Kickers Soccer Club was started as a family passion project in 2016 by Michelle and Chris Clothier, and since then, it has enriched the lives of our family tremendously. We have made it our goal to spread that giving because every day we are blessed to meet and support such brave and strong kids. Each teammate is resilient in their strong story, showing how we can each maintain a positive outlook in the bleakest of times.

Today, Cancer Kickers is an international club dedicated to providing support to our brave teammates. We are committed to following the 100% model, where all overhead and operational funding is provided by dedicated supporters so that every dollar donated goes directly to uplifting the spirits of the Cancer Kickers Soccer Club team.
