RINDGE, N.H. (October 2, 2008) – The Franklin Pierce University men’s and women’s soccer teams will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Boston on Sunday, October 5. It marks the second-straight year the athletics department has participated in the event as the Ravens volleyball and men’s soccer teams completed the walk last fall.

The Franklin Pierce soccer teams are participating this weekend as part of the First Annual WeGotSoccer Team Challenge at the event, joining a team of approximately 500 walkers in hopes of reaching the WeGotSoccer fundraising goal of $60,000 for the American Cancer Society. The walk around Charles River in Boston begins and ends at the Hatch Shell. WeGotSoccer is one of the region’s largest soccer retail locations, located in Raynham, Mass., and is in its second year as a flagship sponsor of Boston’s Making Strides walk.
