Kicks for Cancer is an indoor soccer tournament hosted at Abington Friends School.  This event raises money for melanoma research and is organized by Abington Friends School students. The tournament was founded in 2010 after the tragic passing of Ray Furlong, who was the father of Christina Furlong, a student at Abington Friends School.  In honor of Ray's devotion to Christina and his consistent positive presence on the sidelines of her soccer games, the varsity soccer team started Kicks for Cancer as an annual fundraiser that brings the community together for a good cause.

Every year, up to 20 teams of high school students, teachers, and community members come together in the Abington Friends School gym to play soccer in Ray's memory and raise money and awareness for melanoma prevention. Since 2010, Kicks for Cancer has raised more than $40,000 which has been donated to Fox Chase Cancer Center for melanoma research. Please consider making a donation today!
