Connor's Heroes Foundation announced its support for the cure for childhood cancer as the Rally Across America reached Richmond, Virginia at Outback Steakhouse at 7917 West Broad Street, from 11:30 am until 1:30 pm, Tuesday, June 27, 2006.
Patrons had the opportunity to enjoy a great lunch provided by Outback Steakhouse as well as meet Connor Goodwin, and two Rally Across America team members as they passed through Richmond on their 5,000 mile journey through America last summer to raise money for childhood cancer research through the Rally Foundation.
Rally Across America and your donation will help find cures for kids like Connor. For more information, photographs and updates you can visit the website at http://www.rallyacrossamerica.org/.
The Richmond Kickers are pleased to team up with Connor's Heroes Foundation in the fight against childhood cancer. The Kickers participated in the organization's first fundraising endeavor, "The World Cup Challenge," which kicked off on June 8th, 2006 at Bandito's Burrito Lounge located at 2905 Patterson Ave, Richmond, VA 23220.
The World Cup Challenge paired teams randomly with one of the 32 qualifying FIFA World Cup teams in a fun lottery drawing. The team whose country advanced to the final game of the World Cup on Sunday, July 9th, as well as the team who raised the most money for Connor's Heroes, won a World Cup Finals party at Bandito's Burrito Lounge, including widescreen television, prizes such as tickets to the Kickers versus DC United game on August 30th, and complimentary food and beverages. All proceeds from the event benefitted Connor's Heroes Foundation in its efforts to conquer childhood cancer.
