- Introduction: MHS Girls Soccer Team annual Kicking for a Cure event
To Whom It May Concern:
The Manteca High Girls Varsity Soccer team will hold its annual Kicking for a Cure game against Weston Ranch High on February 1st, 2019. This event is helping to raise money in which 100% of the proceeds will be donated to help Amy Gross. Amy is a teacher at Manteca High School who has taught in the Manteca Unified School District for 31 years. She was diagnosed last February with Stage 4, Non-Smoker Lung Cancer. The diagnosis came as a shock to the Gross family, but Amy, with her positive attitude, decided to take immediate action and began standard treatments of chemotherapy. After several months of feeling weak and sick from those treatments, Amy researched and found another option. Now she is receiving holistic and alternative treatments for her cancer, traveling to Mexico for additional treatments and medicine every three months, and is spending upwards of $3,500 a month on medicine not covered by insurance.
We are looking for your help with this event so we can assist Amy, her husband, and three children, during this challenging time. There are several options for you to get involved with this wonderful cause. We are accepting donations for our raffle and silent auctions taking place at the game (gift cards, items, experiences, food/beverages, etc.), and we welcome any monetary donations as well. We have four circles of donors for those who wish to give generously with money and will be honored on our “Kicking for a Cure” banner that will be prominently displayed at next year’s home football and soccer games, as well as the Athletic Booster Annual Rib Dinner. Our sponsorship categories are as follows: Gold - $1,000.00, Green - $500.00, Silver $250.00, and White - $100.00.
The Kicking for a Cure game is a chance to bring local awareness and hope to the fight against cancer while also supporting a teacher in our own community who has devoted her life to caring for the children of Manteca. Our Coaches, players, faculty, families, and friends have all been affected by cancer in some way, and are proud to sponsor this event to raise money for such a worthy woman. We cannot thank you enough for your support. Together we can all make a difference for Amy, her family, and people everywhere who have been touched by cancer.
