World Cup Challange 2006

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.
