Early this month, Kids 4 Kids presented Friends of Kids with Cancer with a $10,000 donation resulting from its 3v3 soccer tournaments held in August 2017 and January 2018. Since 2012, Kids 4 Kids has raised nearly $35,000 for Friends of Kids with Cancer through its soccer tournaments and other events.

Friends of Kids with Cancer is devoted to enriching the daily lives of children undergoing treatment for, and survivors of, cancer and blood-related diseases. Its mission is to be an advocate for these special kids and provide them and their families with the educational, emotional, and recreational support needed as a result of the long hours of chemotherapy, illness and isolation.

Kids 4 Kids is an organization of self-proclaimed “soccer nuts” that raises money specifically for kids and schools. Since its founding, Kids 4 Kids’ 3v3 charity soccer tournaments have “raised more than $100,000 for kids in need and elementary schools.”
