Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer® started in 2011 in answer to requests from youth soccer teams in New Jersey that wanted to show their commitment to the fight against pediatric cancer. Today, teams across the country representing every sport from youth to professional have Laced Up in Go4theGoal’s GOLD laces.
In 2014, Go4theGoal added “Gear” to the program, offering socks, arm sleeves, headbands, and eye blacks to teams that want to take their awareness and fundraising efforts to the next level.
“I am the parent of a young survivor and was moved to help when I found out my son’s hospital would benefit. He is now a healthy soccer player, so this was the perfect way to give back. Go4theGoal was very easy to work with and prompt in responding to questions. They provided posters, literature, balloons- everything we needed for a smooth fundraiser. The shoelaces were very well received by the families who were eager to support the cause.”
All funds stay in the community where they are raised to support local children.
