The nine institutions of the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) will participate in a Go4theGoal fundraiser during the weekend of September 20-21, 2019. Several of the SCIAC's fall sports teams will help kids with cancer achieve their goals by sporting gold shoelaces during athletic events throughout the weekend.
The mission of Go4TheGoal is to improve the lives of children battling cancer by providing financial support, developing and implementing unique hospital programs, funding innovative research, and granting personal wishes. Through first-hand experience with pediatric cancer and medical backgrounds, Go4theGoal provides the best practices to patients, their families, and the hospitals and staff that care for them.
Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer® started in 2011 in answer to requests from youth soccer teams in New Jersey that wanted to show their commitment to the fight against pediatric cancer. Today, teams across the country representing every sport from youth to professional have Laced Up in Go4theGoal's gold laces.
$4.00 from every pair of $5.00 laces plus 100% of donations go back to helping kids with cancer and their families in the state the funds are raised.
