On August 28, the Georgetown University men’s soccer team and coaching staff visited the clinic and lab at the Lombardi Cancer Center located on campus. Following that visit, the team made a commitment to begin work with the cancer center and those involved in the research to fight pediatric cancer. Georgetown’s first step was to team up with Go4theGoal’s Lace-Up 4 Pediatric Cancer awareness campaign.
