Case study: Butler Family Soccer Team
Meet the Butler Family: 3 generations of people whose lives have been affected by cancer.
After losing their grandparents to cancer and having many cancer survivors in their family, the Butlers decided to join the fight against cancer.
They created a soccer team and challenged Woy Woy FC to a pre-season game at Austin Butler Memorial Oval, named after their grandfather.
“Not only was this an opportunity for the first and reserve grade teams to play a pre-season game, it was also a fantastic way to raise money to help all those affected by cancer. We had a ball!” they told us.
The Butler Family raised over $2,500 to fight cancer!
