NASHVILLE, TN - Once again this year, Tennessee Soccer Club and its membership supported the fight to #KickChildhoodCancer in a big way.
Through selling TSC Cares t-shirts, over $8,000 was raised to be donated to cureHunter, a Tennessee non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for pediatric cancer research. This will bring TSC's total donation amount toward fighting childhood cancer to nearly $20,000 between the last two seasons.
"Supporting pediatric cancer is something that hits very close to home for my family," TSC Executive Director Stuart Brown said. Stuart and his wife Erika's son, Eoin, was diagnosed with cancer two years ago. "Our TSC community has wrapped its arms around us during this time. It is amazing to see them support not only our family, but also many others who are going through a similar experience. We are honored to be able to support cureHunter."
TSC plans to continue growing its TSC Cares outreach to make as positive an impact as possible on the Greater Nashville community. "The sky is the limit with all that we can achieve with our outreach," said TSC Director of Marketing and Development Taylor Johnson. "This community is good to us on so many levels and we want to give back in every way that we can. One of our club values is to build the community and TSC Cares is where that can be put into action."
The TSC Staff would like to thank all coaches and members who purchased a shirt to help us #KickChildhoodCancer! If you did not purchase a shirt through your team in August, please contact the TSC Office to place your order by Friday, September 7.
