Philadelphia Penn Men's Soccer will be one of 18 teams from around the nation that will participate in the Inaugural SHUT-OUT Cancer College Soccer Classic on April 2 in Columbia, Md.
Proceeds from the event, which combines the Men's 1st Annual Shut-Out Cancer College Soccer Soccer Festival and the Women's 9th Annual KICKS Against Breast Cancer, will be split between the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and the Howard County General Hospital's Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource and Image Center.
Participating men's teams include: the University of Maryland, Georgetown, Navy, the College of William & Mary, George Washington, Loyola College and Towson.
The Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults provides support programs, education and resources, free of charge, to benefit young adults, their families and friends, who are affected by cancer, and to promote awareness and prevention of cancer. The Ulman Fund was created by Doug Ulman, a former student-athlete and soccer player at Brown, who was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 19. A three-time cancer survivor, Ulman is the President of the Board for the UCF, and Director of Survivorship for the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
