WCKI Innovation Award
We Can Kick It received the 2019 Innovation Award for using soccer as a tool to inspire and empower children and their families affected by cancer. As a survivor of brain cancer himself, founder and youth coach, Adrian Conoboy, understands the impact cancer has on one’s life. It was through soccer that he found the determination and drive to fight his battle. We Can Kick It offers free soccer programs to youth ages 6 to 18 who are affected by cancer. The program also serves the siblings and young family members of youth with cancer, offering a safe space for them to find new ways to connect and encourage one another. We Can Kick It uniquely tailors its programming to address the special needs of young people fighting cancer.
