coachesvscancer_fbThe USC Upstate men’s soccer team will hold its annual Coaches vs. Cancer Game on Saturday evening as the Spartans host the North Florida Ospreys at 7 p.m. in its final match of the regular season at County University Soccer Stadium. The contest serves as the Upstate edition in raising awareness and funds in the battle against the deadly disease.

Donations are now being accepted for the game. If you would like to make a donation, please contact head coach Greg Hooks at (864) 503-5117/ghooks@uscupstate.edu, assistant coach Scott Halkett at (864) 503-5041/shalkett@uscupstate.edu or a member of the men’s soccer team.

All proceeds will go to benefit the Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute in Spartanburg.

The ASUN men’s soccer coaches came together as a group in 2011 and agreed that each institution would host a Coaches vs. Cancer Game during the season to help fight the many different forms of the disease. Now in its sixth year, the campaign has raised awareness and much needed funds in the battle.

Upstate will acknowledge those in attendance who are cancer survivors, are currently battling cancer, or have someone in their lives who have been impacted by the disease. In addition, a donation table will be set up to accept donations that go directly to help support the battle to end the disease.

Upstate does not charge admission to games at County University Soccer Stadium. The athletic department and men’s soccer team encourage all to come out and support this great cause while also watching exciting ASUN soccer action on the field.
