Soccer Against Leukemia & Lymphoma
SAVE THE DATE! We hope you will join us for the tournament’s fourteenith year! SALLY Games are October 11 and 12, 2014!
The mission of the SALLY Games is to raise money for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and to educate the women’s soccer community about leukemia, lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and other cancers. We hope to achieve this mission by hosting a great soccer tournament and donating the registration fees, snack bar profits and raffle proceeds to The Leukemia Society to advance research and provide patient services. We hope that the tournament provides all participants and spectators with a day of awareness, camaraderie, and competitive soccer.
The SALLY Games was founded in 2001 by a small group of Team in Training(Team) marathoners as an innovative method to reach individual fundraising goals set by Team. But it takes a village to run a tournament. Over the years, most members of the committee do not participate in Team and volunteer their time and energy to this effort. In 2012, we have many members participating on the cycle and marathon teams. Go Team!.
Our host hotel, the Crowne Plaza Sacramento, is offering an $89 rate, which includes a hot breakfast for up to four people per room. Make your reservation by calling Metkeo Keomany directly (her information is below). Please let her know you are with the SALLY Games.
