24-hour soccer tournament raises money for cancer research
Soccer will be making a difference this weekend.
A 24-hour soccer tournament in Bucks County is raising money for cancer research.
The Sarah Parvin Soccerfest is set to kick off Saturday in Quakertown for the sixth consecutive year.
The Quakertown Soccer Club sponsors the event as 185 teams of all ages play continuously from Saturday to Sunday morning.
The tournament's namesake, Sarah Parvin, was just 12 years old when she died of ovarian cancer.
"It gives me a little piece of her back, and I feel like they're all my kids, and they're out there making a difference," said Sarah's mother, Sandra.
The event not only includes a healthy amount of soccer --- but also musical performances and various activities to keep athlethes awake.
