Creighton soccer will host the ninth annual “Kicks For A Cure” presented by First National Bank on Saturday at Rev. Michael G. Morrison, S.J., Stadium on campus (19th & California Streets).
The event, which features high school and collegiate soccer teams competing to raise money and awareness in the fight against cancer, includes four matches (schedule below) with free admission and donations accepted at all of the venue entrances throughout the day.
All of the proceeds of the event – which has raised nearly $1.5 million in its first eight years - will benefit Liz’s Legacy, the fund started by the Karnes family in memory of the late Dr. Liz Karnes. Funds will be directed toward research projects at both the Creighton Hereditary Cancer Center and the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.
