The Smith-Cotton Girls Soccer Team raised over $4,300 for the Bothwell Foundation Cancer Services Fund with its annual 'Kickin’ It for a Cure' Soccer Game on May 4. 

According to a press release from the Bothwell Foundation, in the 5 years the team has hosted the event, more than $30,000 has been donated to the Bothwell Foundation. The soccer team raised money through shirt sales, raffle ticket sales, and a live auction held at half-time of the game. The total amount of money raised was $4,385.

“We are extremely appreciative and supportive of the Kickin’ It for a Cure Game,” said Lauren Thiel, Bothwell Foundation director. “Not only are the girls raising valuable funds that will help patients in our community, they are also raising awareness about the disease.”
