Glenn Davis – Kick Cancer Soccer camps became a reality in 2008 when Glenn Davis turned a camp he was doing into a fund raiser and awareness raiser for pediatric cancer to benefit the 501 C Charity Curing Children’s Cancer Fund. With the help of Fiesta Mart the first camp was off and running and has bloomed into 12 sites throughout Houston San Antonio and Richmond , Virginia as we enter our 6th year!. The pillars of these camps are youth clubs and hosting organizations like the Richmond Strikers, Express, Eclipse, Space City Futbol Club, Cy-Fair Dynamos, Albion Hurricanes, Katy Youth Soccer, Regals SC, Kingwood Alliance, Texas Rush, Houston Aces Womens professional soccer team who provide the basis of staff for sites and facilities.
Camps also include appearances from current professional soccer players (Houston Dynamo, DC United, Montreal, FC Dallas, San Antonio Scorpions and Mexican Football League) plus visits from former pro’s (Houston Stars, Houston Hurricanes, Houston Dynamos, Houston Hotshots and more). Kick Cancer is a unique event in that the entire soccer community comes together as one to support pediatric cancer !!!
