Goals for a Cure Fundraising Presentation




Each year, Santa Clara Sporting Club sponsors an annual campaign to raise breast cancer awareness, “Goals for a Cure.” Santa Clara Sporting Club teams travel for tournaments nationwide. All 36 teams will wear pink jerseys to their games throughout the entire month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Since Goals for a Cure started in October 2008, Santa Clara Sporting Club has raised over $320,000. One hundred percent of all funds received are donated to El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, California. El Camino Hospital uses these funds to provide free mammograms and diagnostic screenings for women in need of financial support.



As a special order of Business, Santa Clara Sporting Club Director Natasha Azevedo will share the mission of Santa Clara Sporting Club’s Goals for a Cure campaign and provide an update on the upcoming 2018 Goals for a Cure campaign and events.
