2nd Annual Kickin’ It Challenge and Silent Auction
The 2nd Annual Kickin’ It Challenge, a two-day youth soccer tournament hosted by Poway Vaqueros Soccer Club, Escondido Heat and the City of Escondido, will be held June 22 and 23 at the Frances Ryan Park in Escondido. All proceeds will be donated to the San Diego Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation®.
Youth soccer teams are invited to “Unite in the Fight” by registering their team to play by May 19. This year, more than 100 teams are expected to participate and join in the fight against a cancer that will touch one in eight soccer moms and grandmothers.
“We are doing this because every soccer club in San Diego has moms fighting this fight. We all know somebody who is undergoing chemo and still getting their kids to practice every day,” said Pam Bickel, this year’s tournament director and the president of Poway Youth Soccer.
On the opening day of the event a silent auction will take place which will feature donated items, including a signed ball and USA Jerseys signed by the USA Women’s National Team who won a gold medal in the 2012 Olympics. To learn more about the tournament, visit www.kickinitchallenge.com.
