As part of the League’s Soccer Kicks Cancer initiative, MLS WORKS and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® teamed up in September for our annual Goals for St. Jude campaign on behalf of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Goals for St. Jude ambassadors, Tim Cahill (New York Red Bulls), Logan Pause (Chicago Fire), Dan Kennedy (Chivas USA) and Shea Salinas (San Jose Earthquakes) supported the campaign during Goals for St. Jude week (Sept. 8-14) and joined MLS WORKS to help increase survival rates for childhood cancer and promote the lifesaving work happening every day at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Additionally, MLS WORKS pledged $100.00 to St. Jude for every MLS goal scored during the month of September. By netting 109 goals this month, MLS players generated over $10,000 in donations for St. Jude.
