COLUMBUS, Ga. – The Columbus State women’s soccer team will hold its annual “Kicks for the Cure” game on Wednesday, Oct. 6 versus Georgia Southwestern.

“We are so excited that Lynn Thompson and St. Francis Hospital agreed to being a title sponsor for the second year in a row,” said Jay Entlich, head women’s soccer coach. “Last year was a huge success, and we hope to match last year’s efforts or, better yet, raise more money to find a cure for cancer.”

The Columbus State jerseys will be auctioned off after the game, raising more money for breast cancer research. There will pink mini-soccer balls thrown out to the fans as well.
