There is something special about the Kansas City Soccer community. At the end of the day, whatever club we play for, coach in or believe in, our love of soccer is something we all have in common. This year, for the first time, KC Athletics is teaming up with KC Legends for a 4 vs 4 tournament Beyond The Goal, which will benefit someone in the Kansas City Soccer community that needs help.
This tournament was inspired by Goran and Gina Hunjak and their family as Gina battles glioblastoma stage 4 brain cancer. The Hunjak family will be the first recipients of the tournament proceeds.
Please help us spread the word of this charitable tournament to your clubs and people in the soccer community. There will be silent auction items, music, food and fun as we play soccer and join together for a cause.
If you would like to help in any additional ways, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for helping us make this a success!
