In anticipation of the 2015 FIFA World Cup in Canada this summer, we hope to raise awareness for women in sport and the unique challenges and successes facing girls and women as shared by these experienced players.  All proceeds from this event will benefit Soccer without Borders and Canada Scores, two organizations dedicated to supporting youth sport and development both domestically and abroad. I will also be auctioning off signed jerseys from the Canadian Women’s National Team at the event. We will also be collecting new or gently used soccer equipment which will be donated to the charities. Please bring any equipment to practices, games or to this event and give it to me. Equipment donations will be collected until June 30th.
