STYSA & Go4theGoal Partnership
Over the September 29th & 30th weekend, South Texas Youth Soccer teamed up with Go4theGoal to showcase a statewide weekend of support to raise funds and awareness for kids battling cancer right here in Texas.
September 2018 was the inaugural year in the partnership for South Texas and the support did not disappoint. Overall, South Texas ended up raising $3,565.00 total from all purchases that will be directly dispersed to programs treating pediatric cancer within South Texas!!
Go4theGoal's Athletic Coordinator Nick Kellerher stated:
"This is AMAZING especially considering this is the first time the fundraiser was rolled out to these teams. We REALLY appreciate everyone at STYSA taking the time and energy to get involved and support the cause. The funds raised through your event will go a long way in providing financial support for these kids and their families, and I know they will really appreciate it. We could not do what we do without help from organizations like yours."
As part of Go4theGoal’s Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer© initiative, teams were encouraged to purchase gold laces or any other Go4theGoal gear to help raise funds and awareness for the cause. Gold laces were $5/pair with $4 from every pair (and 100% of any additional donation) being used to provide financial support for local kids battling cancer.
South Texas would like to thank any participating teams or supporters of this past weekend's event by showcasing team photos here on our website and to share on Social Media. If your team participated, please tag South Texas Youth Soccer & Go4theGoal on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram & email Noah Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a chance at additional South Texas Youth Soccer give-a-ways!!
Support for Go4theGoal can be year round with your support and South Texas looks to showcase the event again next year raising even more funds for pediatric cancer research!
