Kicks For a Cure Returns For 7th Year
Creighton soccer will host the seventh annual “Kicks For A Cure” presented by First National Bank on Saturday at the 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) and tickets are currently on sale at the Wayne and Eileen Ryan Athletic Center Ticket Office. All seats are general admission and tickets cost $8 for adults and $5 for youths (kids five years of age or younger are admitted free). Discount coupons ($1 off) will be available at 20 Omaha-area First National Bank branches and fans can also print the discount coupon at www.kicksforacure.org. Re-entry throughout the day will be allowed with a hand stamp.
All of the proceeds of the event – which has raised $918,000 in its first six 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 UNMC Eppley Cancer Center and the Creighton Hereditary Cancer Center. For more information on the event, go to www.kicksforacure.org.
