The Kicking Goals for Kids with Cancer 24-hour Soccer (Futsal) Marathon is about kids (and parents too), raising money for other kids at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. We are pleased to be holding our third annual event which aims to raise much needed funds for The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. What better way to do this then by playing a 24 hour continuous game of soccer! Over the last 2 years we have contributed over $73,000, which was used to purchase vital equipment for the Oncology Clinic and the Heart Centre. This event is endorsed by The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.
Our aim this is year is to raise over $25,000 for the Oncology Clinic and the Heart Centre. The money raised will be used to purchase life-saving and monitoring equipment. The Zouein family have again supported this event. Their daughter, Gabi has had several lifesaving heart operations at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The hospital’s care and support has gone a long way to aiding her recovery. So a big thank you to Joseph and Clara Zouein for their continued support. Big Joe will again run the 24 hour BBQ.
Thanks again this year to Fraser Gray from KidsFutsal. He has run the 24 hour continuous game every year, without incident and with a load of enthusiasm. Tyndale Christian School have also donated the use of their excellent facilities for the third year running. Thank you to our supporters, the NAB Wetherill Park Business Banking Centre, Gosford Quarries and Snooze Alexandria for your generosity.
Thanks also to all the kids and parents who participate and contribute to this event. Participating players range in age from 5 to well Over 35, both male and female.
