The Quakertown Soccer Club and the Sarah Parvin Foundation are pleased to announce the results of the 2013 Sarah Parvin SoccerFest. In our 6th year of running this event, the total raised was $50,330.70. This was a combined effort of hundreds of QSC and Foundation volunteers who worked for months in advance of the event through the conclusion, helping to bring the total raised since inception to over $225,000. The Parvin Foundation has generously donated money to help run the Hope Lodge at Fox Chase Cancer Center and initiate an Ovarian Cancer Research activity at Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia among other tasks. The SoccerFest is by far their biggest event. Unlike other soccer events Quakertown Soccer Club donates 100% of it’s proceeds from SoccerFest.
This year’s event included almost 200 teams playing 6v6 soccer for 30 minutes straight. Each team had 5-6 games and the tournament runs for 24 hours straight on 13 different fields at Quakertown Soccer Club. A large majority of players/teams camp onsite for the event which includes a marathon Food Court, many forms of Entertainment, Vendors and, of course, soccer for all ages. The youngest teams are U9 travel teams up to Adult Recreation teams.
