Wednesday, July 17 is Kick Cancer day at Target USA CUP! With so many people in attendance for the tournament, we have an opportunity to make a difference and give back to the community, and there are plenty of ways to get involved. Target USA CUP is excited to partner with the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital to support the treatment of pediatric cancer, so the entire campus will be decked out in gold.
The first way is to donate, and you have plenty of options to do so. You can donate online or at Kick Cancer headquarters (which is outside our tournament headquarters) to the organization of your choice, or text usacup to 41444. In addition, some of our vendors will be donating a portion of their proceeds, so keep your eyes peeled for them.
You can also participate in a few activities at Kick Cancer HQ! Put your Kick Cancer stickers up on the board and for each one Target USA CUP will donate $1 to the U of M Masonic Children’s Hospital. For every $5 donated at HQ you get a raffle ticket to win an item autographed by Minnesota United players. Finally, you can make a card for children in the hospital fighting cancer.
Also, for every goal and shutout recorded, Target USA CUP will donate $1 to Kick Cancer. Each player who scores and each goalie who has a clean sheet will get a special Kick Cancer gift; head over to Kick Cancer HQ to get it.
To support the cause, dress up your uniforms and sidelines in gold!
