Concord-Carlisle soccer hosts seventh annual Kicks for Cancer tournament Saturday

Concord-Carlisle is hosting a great group of soccer teams for a great cause.

The seventh annual Kicks for Cancer tournament takes place Saturday, featuring five boys’ games and one girls’ contest. Concord-Carlisle boys coach Ray Pavlic founded the event in 2007 after Lois Wells, mother of Patriots assistant coach Steve Wells, died of cancer.


All of the proceeds go to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. (The event has raised almost $100,000 since it started.) Tickets cost $5 for children and $10 for adults.

“Kicks for Cancer is a true grass roots event that began when the kids just wanted to do something for Coach Wells — but it’s grown into an important benefit. The soccer is always great, but obviously, it’s about so much more than that,” Pavlic said.
