The seventh annual “Kids Kicking for Cancer” Child and Parent Soccer Clinic (CAPS) will be held Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 11-12, from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m. at the USC Indoor Fieldhouse, located on Whaley Street. Hosted by Children’s Chance, the Columbia YMCA, and USC Men’s Soccer Team, the CAPS clinic teaches children ages 4-14 of all levels of play and their parents, the game of soccer in a fun and unique way.
“It’s a great opportunity to give something back to the game and give something back to the community,” USC head Coach Mark Berson states. “Each year, we’ve raised $3,000-$5,000 to help kids fighting cancer right here in the Midlands. We are privileged to be part of this special organization.”
Children’s Chance is a nonprofit organization dedicated to meeting the financial, psychological and emotional needs of South Carolina children and families affected by pediatric cancer. Proceeds from the CAPS clinic will fund a variety of programs to assist these families during their child’s cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
Participants may register in advance by contacting the YMCA at 799-7159 or may register onsite. For more information, please call the Children’s Chance office at 254-5996. To find out more about Children’s Chance, visit www.childrenschance.org.
