The Northern California soccer club started Goals for a Cure back in 2008, after two soccer moms on the Santa Clara Sporting ‘93 boys team were hit with breast cancer. One soccer mom died and the other survived her fight with breast cancer, and it was that impact which spurred Kevin and Jason Azevedo to start Goals for a Cure. Donations are used to provide women with financial need a free mammogram at El Camino Hospital in Santa Clara County. Goals for a Cure has provided 120 women with a free breast examination and 48 women were detected to have breast cancer and started treatment.
