Delaware Valley High School and Dingman Delaware Middle School Team up and Raise $4,000 for Red Card Cancer

Delaware Valley and Red Card CancerThe evening began with the final season match-up for the teams from Delaware Valley High School and Dingman Delaware Middle School. This year however, the stakes were far higher. By teaming up with Red Card Cancer, a program that unites the global soccer community together toward the goal of finding a cure for cancer, the DVMS and DDMS teams were playing for more than just a winning score.

By partnering with Red Card Cancer, the teams worked to raise funds to help the doctors and scientists at Johns Hopkins continue their efforts towards finding a cure. According to Bill Nelson, director of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, "events like this, and the commitment of the soccer community, make the fight against cancer stronger at Johns Hopkins." Without partners like the DVMS and DDMS soccer teams, the goal of a cure would be much farther out of reach.

After the games all of the players, from middle school through high school varsity, competed in a girls versus boys penalty shot shoot-out to see which program could score the most goals and win the coveted “Golden Cleat Award”.  During the penalty shots the players, coaches, and even the Warrior mascot tried their luck against the Delaware Valley Warrior goalies.   In the end the girls took home the award with an impressive 60 goals – although the boys were close behind with a total of 55.  

Altogether, the teams raised $4,000 towards the fight against cancer in a very successful first annual Red Card for Cancer event.
