The Augsburg men’s and women’s soccer teams will take part in an effort to “kick breast cancer” with a unique camp on Friday, Aug. 15.
The Auggies will host a “Soccer Mom Camp” for women ages 18-80 at Edor Nelson Field, with proceeds going to benefit the Kicks Against Breast Cancer organization. The event will be held on Friday, Aug. 15, from 7:30 – 10 p.m.
The camp is designed to get women into the exciting action of soccer by providing a fun workout and interaction with members and coaches from the Augsburg men’s and women’s soccer teams.
Cost of the camp is $40 per mom. Each player gets a camp T-shirt. Parents can bring their children and they will have fun while the moms play on the field. Moms are encouraged to wear comfortable workout-style clothing and athletic shoes. Balls and water will be provided.
The Soccer Mom Camp concept was founded in 2007 by the Marquette University men’s soccer program. Kicks Against Breast Cancer (http://www.kicksagainstbreastcancer.com/) is a nationwide organization for American soccer to raise money to help find a cure for breast cancer, and to help those living with cancer to survive and thrive.
