Potomac Maryland High School Girls Soccer Team Puts Red Card Cancer in the Net

May 12, 2013

Red card Cancer

This year, the girls’ soccer team at Winston Churchill High School in Potomac, MD, decided to take on their biggest opponent ever – cancer.

As part of a continued partnership between the Churchill Bulldogs and Red Card Cancer, a program that unites the global soccer community together toward the goal of finding a cure for cancer, the team was able to raise $2,150 over the course of this year’s season.

All of the funds raised will go directly to the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center in Baltimore, where they will support the research of scientists working to discover new, effective cancer treatments from already existing drugs. Testing existing compounds for their effectiveness at halting, or even reversing, the growth of cancer has profound implications for treating, and ultimately curing, patients and for reducing the financial burden patients face by repurposing older drugs whose costly patents have expired.

Without partners like the Churchill Bulldogs, the goal of a cure would be much farther out of reach.  Thanks to their successful efforts, the dedicated researchers and clinicians at the Kimmel Cancer Center are one step closer to giving cancer the red card.
