Kicking It for Charity

Danny Califf, Brian Ching, Robbie Rogers and Chris Rolfe are joining a host of celebrities and athletes this afternoon to play in the Second Annual Mia Hamm & Nomar Garciaparra Celebrity Soccer Challenge at The Home Depot Center. Other celebrities scheduled to participate include skate boarding legend Tony Hawk and young gun Ryan Sheckler, U.S. Olympic Gold Medalist Kerri Walsh , NFL great Marcus Allen, Zachary Levi of Chuck, Jimmy Jean Louis of Heroes, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, and others.

Proceeds will benefit bone marrow patient and family services at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. The Mia Hamm Foundation is a non-profit organization built upon the dual mission to: 1) raise funds and awareness for marrow and cord blood transplant patients and their families, and 2) promote and help develop more opportunities for young women in sports.

That is real cool. I am still working to register people to the bone marrow register. I sold all my jerseys to help Marcia Williams medical fund and I am gonna be doing registrations at three preseason MLS games in Austin. Ms.Marcia needs everyone to help her.
