Penn Legacy to Host Soccer-a-Thon!

four diamonds fund thon fundraiser logoPenn Legacy will host Soccer-a-Thon, a very special day coming up on Saturday June 13th at Lanco Fieldhouse. On that day they are trying to have a game of soccer going for 12 full hours, from 9 in the morning to 9 at night. They are doing this to try and raise money for the Four Diamonds Fund at Hershey Children’s Hospital. The Four Diamonds Fund is named after a story that a little boy wrote shortly before he lost his battle with cancer. In it he tells of a brave knight who searched for the four diamonds of courage, wisdom, honesty, and strength in order to be released from captivity by an evil sorceress. The four diamonds are symbolic of the traits that the boy believed were necessary for him to overcome cancer. The Fund itself offsets the cost of treatment for any family in Pennsylvania that has a child with cancer and provides much needed money to fund pediatric cancer research. The fund has helped more than 3,200 families since it was created in 1972, hours after the little boy who wrote the story passed away.

In order to pull this event off they are REALLY going to need everyone’s help! They basically need to have enough players at the event each hour to have some sort of game going all the way through the 12 hours. One hour it may only be 3v3 on 1 field, the next hour we may 6v6 on all 3 fields, but we WILL keep it going. Once you know how many hours you can play for (only 3 in a row, then you must take at least a 2 hour break) then you go out and try to get your friends, family, neighbors to sponsor you. Then you show up on the day and just play and have fun!

Local Central PA Team; Lititz Youth Soccer Elite 98 is going to Nationals

Lititz Youth Soccer LogoThe Lititz Youth Soccer Club Elite 98 U15 team has qualified for US Youth Soccer National Championship tournament in Greenville,SC. The President’s Cup is a national championship competition that starts at the state level.  Teams compete in a World Cup format round robin competition to win placement in a “knock-out” round.  Teams advancing to the knock-out rounds play until a champion is determined. Those champions advance to a regional final and eventually to a national final.

This team was crowned champions of the state-wide President’s Cup Competition after defeating FC York Elite by a score of 3-0. Lititz Elite advanced to the Regional Finals to which was held in Slippery Rock, PA.  The team proved successful in Slippery Rock, they will advance to the National Finals to be held in July of this summer.  There are 4 teams that make the finals, with Elite 98 being one.

This trip is posing a financial burden on some families to the point that some players may not be able to make the trip.  The team is requesting financial support to help the entire team make the trip.  If there is any way possible that to provide support to team to enable them to reach the national competition it would mean the world to the coaching staff  and group of fine young men.  The team is looking forward to the opportunity to represent Lancaster County in Greenville, S.C.

Let’s help the local boys as they represent Central PA! Use the link below for more information about how you can help.
