Hello on behalf of Kick-Start The Philippines, a grassroots initiative founded to raise recovery funds for the Philippine Islands! Since the disastrous Hurricane Yolanda devasted the Philippine Islands in early November 2013, killing at least 6,000 people and displacing tens of thousands more, we have come together to help a country that continues to fall victim to countless natural disasters. Despite the absence of this story from daily news reports, those affected still need our support for continuing relief services. Years after the world has forgotten about this tragedy, people in the Philippines will continue to recover from the destruction caused by Hurricane Yolanda.
In order to raise awareness for ongoing recovery efforts, Kick-Start The Philippines and the Drexel Women’s Club Soccer Team will host a soccer tournament on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at the Drexel University Vidas Field. The tournament will bring together hundreds of recreational athletes who support re-development in the Philippines. All proceeds for the tournament will go directly to The ABS-CBN Foundation, a charity based in the Philippines that organizes relief throughout the islands most affected by this natural disaster.
The flyer below has the details of the tournament, with a collegiate bracket starting at 8:00 am, and an amateur bracket starting at 2:30 pm. Please register by March 24th, 2014.
