Members of the Lancer varsity soccer teams will volunteer as referees for the second annual Smiles 4 Miles four-on-four soccer tournament, May 5 at École Secondaire L’Essor.
The event commemorates Zachary D’Souza, a L’Essor student and athlete who died in November 2010 at the age of 17 from Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In its first year, the tournament raised $35,000 for the SickKids Foundation, which funds children’s health research, education and care.
Teams of six players compete in seven divisions: boys under 12, girls under 12, boys under 16, girls under 16, open age male, open age female, and open age mixed. The entry fee is a minimum of $20 per player, either paid by the individual or collected from sponsors.
