Welcome to the Third Annual Bubble Soccer Philanthropy Event presented by the brothers of Phi Kappa Psi and the sisters of Kappa Delta!

This year's event will raise funds for a cause close to one of our brothers. In August 2016, Cindy Burton, the mother of one of our brothers, was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. Cindy began chemotherapy in October of 2016, and she expects to complete her treatments in April with surgery to follow shortly upon completion of chemotherapy. After hearing about Cindy's battle with breast cancer, we knew we wanted to assist in any way possible.
When Cindy was diagnosed, her primary care physician recommended a few options for treatment, and she ultimately decided to work with the doctors and breast cancer specialists at the Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis. She chose the Anne Arundel Medical Center because of their outstanding reputation for treating breast cancer, as well as their holistic approach to cancer treatment in general. After speaking with Cindy, she believed that the funds raised from this event ought to benefit the DeCesaris Cancer Institute, specifically the oncology department, within the Medical Center. Cindy felt encouraged by the strong support group surrounding her, and she believed that the oncology department at the Medical Center provided an incredible support system for women and families who may otherwise struggle to receive cancer treatment. For more information about the DeCesaris Cancer Institute and the incredible work they perform, please feel free to visit http://www.aahs.org/cancer/about-us.php. We appreciate any support you are able to provide for this great cause!
We are asking for your help in order for this year's event to be the largest and most successful Bubble Soccer Tournament yet! Spread and the word and invite your friends and we are excited to see you on April 1st!
