Goethals 24 Hour Challenge

Commitment - Dedication - Courage

Throughout the years, Diane Goethals has worked around the clock for our kids.  Now as she battles breast cancer, we took a turn to work around the clock for her.  The Goethals 24 Hour Challenge took place on August 10 and 11th as a non-stop 24 hour soccer game and relay run / walk to say thanks to Diane and raise awareness of fundraising efforts.  The goal is to raise as much money as possible to assist the family with expenses (medical, school, travel home, etc.).  We beat the initial goal of $50k!  Way to go......but don't stop.  The donations have room for a note to the family. 

Hundreds of soccer players (600-700) played friendly matches from 4 pm Saturday to 4 pm Sunday August  at the main stadium at Rochester High School.  We also had the track open for Goethals family track teammates, running clubs and others who simply wanted to walk to join in and contribute.  Check out the Facebook page for more pictures -- there are a few here.

We hope to expand efforts to help the Goethals beyond this single event with donations through this site.  With a lengthy hospital stay and four kids soon to be in college, our contributions will be of great and timely assistance.  This site will stay active through the end of 2013 hopefully building momentum from the 24 hour event in August.  Please keep them coming.  Donations from all sources are needed!
