Mount Marty Soccer Teams Join NFCR All-Stars to Fund Cancer Research


Published Date10\23\2012
The Mount Marty College men's and women's soccer teams have joined hands with the National Foundation for Cancer Research to participate in the 3rd annual "NFCR's All Stars" campaign, in which sports teams across the country are invited to participate by committing to donate proceeds from at least one game to NFCR.

Mount Marty will be donating proceeds from their games on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012 to NFCR.

"We are excited to raise awareness about the importance of cancer research as well as give back to our community through this fundraising event," said Mount Marty men's soccer coach Nathan Epp. "So many people have been affected by this terrible disease, and we are looking forward to doing our part to support NFCR's pursuit of a cure."

To raise funds, the team will be collecting donations at the gate for both games.

The men's game begins at 1:00 p.m., and the women's game begins at 3:00 p.m., both being held at the National Field Archery Association field in Yankton. All players will be wearing pink jerseys in support of the cause.
