Carolinas’ Kickin’ It Challenge – Unite in the Fight

May 12, 2017 | 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

This May, we invite you to join the Carolinas’ Kickin’ It Challenge – Unite in the Fight event series. This youth soccer tournament (and related fundraising events) first debuted in Rock Hill, SC on Mother’s Day Weekend 2014. Fort Mill resident Shana Shivel co-founded the event to honor the memory of her late mother, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2008. The inaugural Kickin’ It fundraiser raised over $60,000 to benefit breast cancer diagnostic services in York County (administered by Levine Cancer Institute).

For 2017, the signature club level soccer tournament (May 6-7) as well as a kickoff party and silent auction in Fort Mill (May 12), are focused entirely on raising money for the fight against breast cancer. All proceeds will fund patient programs in York and Mecklenburg County and national cancer research programs.

Event details:

Kick-Off Party: The 2017 Carolinas’ Kickin’ It Challenge fundraiser will begin Friday, May 12, with a Kick-Off Party at the Anne Springs Close Greenway Dairy Barn in Fort Mill, SC. The Friday evening party features a silent auction, dinner, and entertainment by Charlotte-based country rock band Early Ray. Matt Harris of 107.9 The Link’s The Matt and Ramona Show, will emcee the auction and concert.

Soccer tournament: Working with Discoveries Soccer Club in Rock Hill, the signature club level (youth) soccer tournament will follow on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7 at Manchester Meadows complex in Rock Hill, S.C.
