Youth soccer: Kick Cancer camps to raise funds for childhood research
Childhood cancer affects everyone, including young athletes.
Former professional soccer player and renowned broadcaster Glenn Davis, host of Dynamo All-Access and Soccer Matters on Sports Talk 790, discovered that fact six years ago.
“I got a call from Texas Children’s Hospital and they had a patient who was a fan of the Mexican National Soccer Team,” Davis said. “He was a teenager and I arranged for him to get a signed ball or jersey. When I was talking to the doctors at Texas Children’s Cancer Center, I found out that many of the patients had soccer backgrounds. It was eye-opening.”
