WIL­LIAMSTOWN, Ontario – De­spite the rain, Kicks for a Cause was a great suc­cess. The an­nual fundrais­ing soc­cer tour­na­ment took place at Wil­liamstown Pub­lic School on Satur­day, June 23.

“Day went great other than a cou­ple tem­po­rary show­ers,” said or­ga­nizer Colton Gal­lant. “Great turnout and sup­port for the event. We were able to raise $2,700 af­ter ex­penses that we will be able to do­nate to Be­yond 21.”

Gal­lant ex­plained that he had a great team that worked to­gether to make this year’s event a suc­cess.

The win­ning team from this year’s tour­na­ment were the Wing­men, who took home the tro­phy, which looked very sim­i­lar to the FIFA World Cup tro­phy.

“It is all for a good cause,” said Gal­lant, who has worked with Be­yond 21 in the past. “Con­sid­er­ing they don’t get gov­ern­ment fund­ing, what they are do­ing is pretty awe­some.”

In all, around 16 teams par­tic­i­pated in the tour­na­ment.

Wing­men cap­tain Michael Macleod holds the tour­na­ment tro­phy with event or­ga­nizer Colton Gal­lant.
