Soccer tournament kicks off Saturday

Anneswer To Cancer family tournament goes Saturday at Topaz Park

It’s soccer Saturday at Topaz Park at the sixth annual Anneswer To Cancer family tournament.

This year’s tourney kicks off with a minis tournament starting at 11:30 a.m., followed by the main family soccer tournament starting at 1 p.m.

The event works to raise funds for Victoria Hospice to help support end-of-life care in our community, and brought in $45,000 last year with a goal of $50,000 this year.

Anneswer to Cancer was started by Brett Hyslop, whose mother Anne passed away at Victoria Hospice in 2010 due to mesothilioma, a cancer caused by asbestos.

Tournament check-in is at noon until 12:45 p.m. The “family level” (seven-years and up) soccer tournament runs from 1 to 5 p.m.  Teams compete in fun games and contests to raise funds and win prizes.
