Soccer jamboree

benefit

The first Natey’s “Incredible” Jamboree takes place today at Gordon Field. This soccer jamboree is intended to bring families together for a day of soccer fun while heightening the community’s awareness of a childhood cancer, neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a very aggressive, often fatal form of pediatric cancer affecting the sympathetic nervous system.

The McKean family was blessed with the birth of Nathan Harrison on Oct. 24, 2001. Just more than two years later — Jan. 9, 2004 — Nathan was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Nathan lost his battle with neuroblastoma on June 16, 2007. One of Nate’s favorite things to do was to watch his sisters play soccer while talking of the day he “would be bigger” and could join them. For Nate and too many other children like him that day would never come.

The McKean family has partnered with Westsound FC to host the first Natey’s “Incredible” Jamboree. All proceeds from the jamboree will go to neuroblastoma programs like Lunch For Life (www.lunchforlife.org), Alex’s Lemonade Stand (www.alexslemonade.org) and the Childhood Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation (www.cncf-childcancer.org).

Registration is accepted on site for boys and girls teams from U11 to U13. There will be a three-game guarantee. The entry fee is $195. For more details or to register a team, visit Westsound FC online at www.westsoundfc.com.
