What is Soccer For A Cure
"Soccer For A Cure" is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. Its purpose is to serve as a
place where all levels of the Soccer nation
(youth, club, high school, college, adult, and professional) can
"Stand Together as a Team" to help
families fight the battle against all types of cancer.
Why was it started?
It was started in January 2008 by Charlie Corbitt, a cancer survivor and warrior
advocate for others affected with cancer.
He has been involved in college and high school soccer since 1993 and is currently the manager of the
"SIS College Soccer Scoreboard" and
"National High School Soccer Scoreboard".
His hope is that the soccer nation will one day
"Stand Together Hand in Hand as One"
and become pro-active in the fight against cancer.
