All of the money raised by the Kids Kickin' Cancer soccer tournament at MUSC will be donated to Camp Happy Days ( which is a local Charleston organization that supports children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Camp Happy Days is a free week of summer camp for children diagnosed with cancer and their siblings, held every summer at Camp Bob Cooper on Lake Marion. What a childhood diagnosis of cancer takes away from these kids' lives, Camp Happy Days tries to put back. Whether it is tubing and swimming in the lake, woodworking, painting, etc. these kids are given a week-long break from the hospitals and doctors. Whether it is returning campers or first-timers, these campers leave with a family that is there to support them through the tough times that cancer brings. While the camp may only be a week long, the experiences and friends/family that these kids leave the camp with last a lifetime.

The cost of sending a child to Camp Happy Days is $800, but all of these costs are covered by the Camp Happy Days organization through fundraising efforts like this one, making the camp 100% free for the children participating. Each year, about 200 children are able to spend one of the best weeks of their year at Camp Happy Days!

$15 Registration includes soccer, food, t-shirts, and helping kids diagnosed with cancer!

$$$ Prizes to local restaurants for winning teams.
