The UOIT and DC men’s soccer teams are putting together the first annual Charity Cup event on March 30, where the two teams will be seen squaring off against each other.
The event is to raise money and awareness about Their Opportunity, a local charity that gives youth the opportunity to enroll in local sports programs when they don’t have the means otherwise.
The teams collectively decided on the charity, and decided Their Opportunity was the best fit because it gives back to the local community. The captain of the UOIT men’s soccer team, Michael Heinrich, is spearheading the initiative. “It’s a responsibility of being a captain, to take on challenges, take on being a leader, and setting an example,” he said.
The match will be at 7 p.m. in gym one and two in the Campus Recreation Centre. It’s not a free event, but any cash donation will get students and guests through the door.
