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.
