Salem girls soccer to Kick for a Cure

SALEM — The varsity and junior varsity girls soccer teams will show their school spirit with pink and lime green when they take on Winthrop today.

Calling their event Kick for a Cure, the teams will be raising awareness for breast cancer and lymphoma with help from the North Shore Cancer Walk. The organization gave the teams money to purchase special jerseys for the game — pink for varsity, representing breast cancer awareness, and lime green for JV, representing lymphoma awareness. As a way of saying thanks, the team will be collecting $2 donations at the gate today for the nonprofit, varsity head coach Fred Day said.

Both varsity and JV players made pink and lime ribbons to give to those who make donations at the gate.

The fundraiser is personal for the teams. JV coach Jessica Trioli’s boyfriend is battling lymphoma, while a teammate’s mother died of breast cancer last year.

“It’s close to home, like it is for many people,” Day said.

JV plays at 5 p.m., while varsity is scheduled to take the field at 7 p.m. Both games are at Bertram Field.
