SELINSGROVE, Pa. – On Saturday, Oct. 20, the Susquehanna and University of Scranton men's soccer teams will hold a Red Card Cancer event to help raise funds to cure cancer when the River Hawks host the Royals at 1 p.m. at Sassafras Field.

Prior to and during the game, Susquehanna will collect donations. All money raised will go to the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center to support important scientific discoveries being made at the Center, which has been the recipient of funds raised through Red Card Cancer since 2010.

Red Card Cancer was founded in 2009 when Bloomsburg University (and former University of Scranton) men's soccer coach Paul Payne wanted to pay tribute to two friends who passed away after battling cancer. 

After starting as a weekend event at Bloomsburg five years ago, Red Card Cancer has grown into a nationwide initiative in the soccer community.
