Soccer Dogs Tournament
Over 32 teams ranging from age 9 – adult, came together for the Soccer Dogs 3 on 3 Soccer Tournament earlier this summer for some friendly competition and to raise money for charity.
This is the fourth year Rhys Dulisch, a local high school student, has organized the tournament in memory of his best friend Ty Santavy who died in 2008 at age 7 after having a liver transplant.
The charities benefitting from this year’s proceeds are the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation and Ronald McDonald House (Southwestern Ontario).
The Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation will use the donation of $5,111 to purchase necessary medical equipment.
To date, the Soccer Dogs Tournament has raised close to $30,000 for charity.
Rhys is already planning for next year’s tournament to be held on May 27, 2017.
