KANELAND—The Kaneland United Soccer Club held a Think Pink fundraiser in October to raise money and awareness for cancer.
Two local residents of the Kaneland community, Matt Olson and Bridget Sweeney, both battling a cancer diagnosis, were the recipients of the club’s proceeds. The club sold pink spirit wear to its players and at the Oct. 11 Kaneland High School football game.
The players wore their pink gear during October league games. Almost $900 was raised by the club. The recipients were the guest of honor at a 10U boys game held earlier this month in Elburn.
