FC Brandywine B+ Foundation Turf Cup

Great Fall tournament in Chadds Ford, PA supporting The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation. The B+ Foundation tournament that is sanctioned by EPYSA will take place over the weekend of Saturday Nov 23th and Sunday Nov 24th.  Teams will be guaranteed  3 games with a possible championship.  All new US Soccer mandates will be used including the U09 and U10 build out line and NO heading for U09 - U11.

Overview

The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation honors the life of Andrew McDonough. Andrew battled leukemia, septic shock and complications of childhood cancer for 167 days before passing away on July 14, 2007, at the age of 14. Andrew’s B+ blood type became his family’s and friends’ motto throughout his fight against childhood cancer — to “Be Positive”.  The B+ Foundation is about Kids Helping Kids Fight Cancer — raising money through dance marathons, 5Ks, T-shirt sales and more, to provide financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer nationwide. The B+ Foundation also funds critical, cutting-edge childhood cancer research. This tournament will be donating a part of the proceeds to the Foundation as well as hoping to increase aware about the Foundation and the great work it does.
