Come and spend a night of soccer with Revolution and the Fairfield University Staggs and help us raise funds for "The Cancer Couch Foundation", founded by a member of our Revolution Family Rebecca Scalera. Rebecca is the mother of Luca Scalera, a U10 player, who was diagnosed with stage 3c breast cancer at the start of last year's season. As she was going through and researching treatment, she learned that very little, if any funding goes to metastatic breast cancer research. Metastatic breast cancer is the deadliest form of breast cancer with no successful treatment options and no cure.Rebecca has since been on a mission to change this grim fact and has gone so far as to start her own foundation, "The Cancer Couch Foundation" which raises money solely for metastatic breast cancer research. 100% of funds raised are donated directly to specific doctors performing research and Sloan Kettering and Dana Faber have both agreed to match all funds raised, which is incredible.
The clinic is open to all male and female youth players. Revolution players must wear their uniforms (red jerseys, white shorts and white socks). There will be an opportunity for Revolution United FC players to escort Fairfield University players on to the field and scrimmage during half time!
Let's all come together and show your Revolution spirit and help support this noble cause. See you Saturday!!!
