We are excited to announce that Headers for Hope and the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults (UCF) are partnering for the Headers for Hope 2013 Women’s Soccer Showcase. Participating collegiate teams include: University of Maryland, Loyola University, College of William and Mary, U.S. Naval Academy, Old Dominion University, Penn State University, and the University of Virginia. The Headers for Hope 2013 Women’s Soccer Showcase will be held on April 13, 2013 at the Howard High School Stadium in Columbia, MD.
“Headers for Hope is a great nonprofit organization that seeks to raise money for local charities in the fight against cancer. We are honored to have been selected as the local charity partner for the tournament,” says Brock Yetso, UCF President & CEO. “As a former collegiate UVA soccer player, this is an event that is close to my heart paring my love of soccer with my passion for the cancer fight.” The Headers for Hope Tournament provides coaches and players an opportunity to play some of the best teams in women’s college soccer, while also providing teams the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people affected by cancer. The seven teams will compete against each other in a round-robin tournament with UVA vs Penn State at 6pm. All day tickets will be $10 at the gate.
“I am delighted that we will partner with the Ulman Cancer Fund for 2013,” said Louise Waxler, founder of Headers For Hope. “The ability to raise awareness about the risks of cancer to our college athletes and young soccer players is our ultimate goal. Our partnership with the UCF provides us with the opportunity to spread the word and to help make a difference in saving the lives of those we love.”
