Lincoln-Way Soccer Teams Host Annual Kick for a Cure
Thursday, April 25, 2019

Knights, Griffins, and Warriors may be rivals on the soccer field. But off the field, the girls soccer teams come together to raise money at the annual Kick for a Cure.

Over the past ten years, Lincoln-Way has raised and donated more than $35,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness and Type 1 Diabetes.

This year, the teams, joined by Homewood-Flossmoor, raised $4,827.91 to be donated to the Silver Cross Hospital Cancer Foundation, along with the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Tracy Simons from Silver Cross shared that this year's donation will go towards the purchase of a new 3D Mammography machine, which helps lead to early detection of these cancers.

Students in Lincoln-Way Central and Lincoln-Way West marketing classes designed, marketed, and sold t-shirts for the Kick for a Cure soccer event.

In game play, Lincoln-Way Central defeated Lincoln-Way East 3-1 and Lincoln-Way West beat Homewood-Flossmoor 1-0. Local youth soccer clubs scrimmage in between the match-ups.
