Kicking for a Cause

The only thing that could make a Friday night soccer game even better is a Friday night soccer game for a good cause. Tonight, Philip hosted the second annual Kick for Cancer soccer game.

There were raffles, halftime events, and snacks. Of course, Jacob had great fun kicking a goal during halftime.

He also enjoyed seeing a few of his buddies.

Three future soccer stars...

All proceeds from the event go towards Friends of Kids with Cancer. The rain held out for most of the game and we almost pulled out a win. But the win against the opposing team wasn't the main goal. This game was about giving back. In a recent article in the Webster-Kirkwood Times, Philip was quoted as saying, "when it comes to a great cause such as this we have the same purpose in mind: to help others in need." We are so fortunate for what we have in life that we should have more of these moments, take part in more of these events, that give to others.

I am so very proud of my Philip for organizing such an amazing event. His dedication to his team and our community is truly exemplary.

Thank goodness this little guy has such an amazing daddy to look up to.
