ONU soccer teams "Kicks for a Cause" on Saturday

The event, which raised close to $1,000 last year, will take place during the OAC double header against Baldwin Wallace on Saturday, Oct. 12.

All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society.

Both the men's and women's teams will warm up in Kicks for a Cause t-shirts, which were designed by sophomore women's soccer team member Hannah Moloney.
