STLFC Renews Partnership with Gateway to Hope

September 20, 2018 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Saint Louis FC News Release

St. Louis, MO - Saint Louis FC has renewed the club's partnership with Gateway to Hope, a local nonprofit organization, for the home game on Wednesday, October 10th against Tulsa Roughnecks FC to raise funds for breast cancer patients in need.

During the match, Saint Louis FC will wear pink jerseys which will then be auctioned online with proceeds benefiting Gateway to Hope. Likewise, revenue from pink merchandise sold in the Soccer Park Fan Shop throughout the month of October will be donated to the organization. Saint Louis FC will also recognize a breast cancer survivor at halftime of the October 10th game against Tulsa Roughnecks FC.

Gateway to Hope is a breast cancer lifeline. The organization provides financial assistance and emotional support to women diagnosed with breast cancer by helping remove barriers that keep them from getting the lifesaving treatment they need.

"We have found that for many women, it's not just the diagnosis of breast cancer that puts fear into their heart; it's the other challenges," said Tracy Gellman, Development Manager at Gateway to Hope. "Will I be able to work? If I lose my job or if I am put on leave, will I still have health insurance to cover my treatment? How sick am I going to be? Will I be able to keep up with financial obligations? Our program staff answers these and hundreds of other questions when newly diagnosed breast cancer patients call our lifeline."

More information about the online auction for the pink jerseys will be released in the coming days.
