Anneswer to Cancer soccer fundraiser going for world record


April 7, 2014, VICTORIA, BC (ISN) – This year’s 4th annual Answer to Cancer soccer tournament to raise funds for Victoria Hospice and families battling cancer will attempt to set a world record for the most people making consecutive soccer passes. The current record is 596 people.

The world record attempt will begin at noon, May 10th, at Finlayson Turf Field and will continue until the new record of at least 597 people making 12 yard passes is attained, followed by the soccer tournament. Anyone can participate in the event by registering online and raising a minimum pledge of $25 for the world record attempt and $75 for the tournament.

Just over 3 years ago Brett Hyslop, owner of World Cup Soccer, lost his mom to Mesothelioma Cancer. Brett’s business partner, Steph Steiner, suggested they host a charity event in her honor and subsequently the 3 events to date have raised over $120,000. “I have been blown away by the overwhelming support of my friends in the community and would like to thank everyone for their support”, says Brett Hyslop. World Cup Soccer, based in Victoria, has hosted soccer camps and academy programs throughout the province for over 25 years.
