Arizona girls soccer team advances to regional Presidents Cup championship
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -
The Arizona Hammers girls soccer team have trained hard this season, and all of their work has paid off. The girls are headed to Washington in June to represent Arizona in the 2015 Region IV Presidents Cup game, but they need help from Valley supporters to get there.
The Arizona Hammers are champions in their division after winning the Arizona Presidents Cup, making them the top 15-year-old girls team in the state.
Tournament fees for this age group typically run from $500 to $800, and expenses for the tournament are expected to average $1,000 per girl. The costs are presenting a whole new challenge to the team and their families, many of which are from lower to middle class backgrounds, so they are asking for help to score this goal.
The team will be holding car washes and taking on extra jobs in their neighborhoods and communities to raise funds for the regional championship. They will be hosting a benefit car wash this Saturday, April 11 near 51st Avenue and Olive.
The Arizona Hammers are also asking for donations on their GoFundMe page. So far the team has received $1,205 of their $10,000 goal from the page.
