USC Grad Hosting|
July 5, 2013
Long since serving up the game-winning goal in USC's 2007 NCAA Championship victory, Trojan Marihelen Tomer has remained hungry to succeed. Now, however, the USC women's soccer standout is focusing her efforts on an international stage. As founder of the nonprofit organization Luv Way Ministries, Tomer is working to save the lives of children in Kenya.
One of the first stages of building her organization will be an fundraising event this weekend in Upland. Luv Way is hosting a 4-on-4 soccer tournament called "Kickin' it for Kenya" on Saturday (July 6) at The Arena in Upland, Calif. The entry fee is $25 per player, and proceeds go toward Luv Way and its mission to build and open a children's home in Kenya.
Call 909-985-7903 to register. For more information on Luv Way, please visit luvway.org
