Sedalia, Missouri, May 22, 2017 – The Smith-Cotton Girls Soccer Team made a donation to the Bothwell Foundation Cancer Services Fund by hosting their annual Kickin’ It for a Cure Soccer Game.
The Smith-Cotton Girls Soccer team made a donation of $4,385 to the Bothwell Foundation Cancer Services Fund. This is the fifth year the game has been held and the team has donated over $30,000 to the Bothwell Foundation through the Kickin’ It for a Cure game. This year’s annual event was held on May 4 against conference rival Warrensburg. Funds were raised by the soccer team through shirt sales, raffle ticket sales, and by a live auction that was held at half-time.
“We are extremely appreciative and supportive of the Kickin’ It for a Cure Game. Not only are the girls raising valuable funds that will be able to help patients in our community, but they are also creating awareness of the disease,” said Lauren Thiel, Bothwell Foundation Director. Funds raised through Kickin’ It for a Cure have been used to help provide gas cards, Ensure protein drinks, a new speaker system that allows patients to listen to a customizable play list while receiving radiation therapy and other items to help patients during their treatment at the Bothwell Regional Health Center.
