Quakers Raise Money For Children's Hospital

PHILADELPHIA - On Sunday, April 23, the members of Penn women's soccer team set aside their books and returned to the field to participate in a fundraising soccer clinic for the female youths in the Philadelphia area. Alongside fellow Philadelphia City 6 soccer squads Drexel, La Salle, St. Joseph's, Temple and Villanova, the team gathered in efforts to teach the young players a little something about the game in addition to raisingmore than$1,000 for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Oncology Unit.

The event was also a great opportunity to bring together the local college teams in a joint effort for the betterment of the Philadelphia area and hopefully spawned a new tradition.

On behalf of the Penn team, we thank Saint Joseph's for organizing the event and hope thatthe girls took away as much as we did from the evening!
