Beaver Falls, Pa. – Geneva softball hosts the Washington & Jefferson Presidents on Saturday, April 8 in a conference doubleheader starting at 1 p.m. Both Geneva and W&J will be competing in gold shoe laces in support of Go4TheGoal’s mission to improve the lives of children battling cancer.

Go4theGoal was founded in 2006 following Richard Stefancci diagnosis of Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. Stefancci lost his battle just before his 15th birthday.

In 2010, Stefancci’s young cousin was also diagnosed with a rare cancer, Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. With the support of the Go4theGoal, she won her battle with cancer and is going on her sixth-year cancer free.

Go4theGoal created the Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer event in 2011. Teams from every sport across the nation purchase and wear gold laces from Go4theGoal, with the proceeds helping children with cancer and their families.

Geneva and W&J have joined the movement, and coaches and players will wear laces during the April 8 double header.

For those who wish to join in supporting Go4theGoal, a donation bucket will be available at the game. One-hundred percent of donations will support the Go4theGoal foundation.
