THE ANNUAL KICKS FOR A CURE WEEKEND
April 19-20, 2024
The annual event is “kicked off” with an auction and program on Friday night. This year we’re changing things up! The Annual Event will be held at Let it Fly Sports Bar in Omaha! Saturday, join us for exciting local high school and college soccer matches held at Creighton’s Morrison Stadium.
The Kicks for a Cure weekend honors Liz Karnes and her love of soccer. Traditionally Saturday’s soccer games (featuring local teams) offer an opportunity for families to cheer on the athletes and spread awareness for a great and important cause. In 2023, we are also proud to partner with the Alliance Soccer Tournament for the third year in a row, where over 75 youth teams will compete. Proceeds raised from the tournament will be directed to local pediatric cancer research.
Funds from the auction and event go directly to cancer research at the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center and the Lynch Comprehensive Cancer Research Center at Creighton University in Omaha. In 2023, the event raised $400,000! Past events total an impressive $4,400,000.
