The 2015 Shawn Kuykendall Memorial Tournament and Charity Match took place August 8 at the Evergreen Sportsplex in Leesburg, Va.
The tournament featured competition in three age groups, with Evergreen FC’05, McLean Thunder Green, and SYA 03 White crowned champions in their respective brackets. At night, the adults got their turn on the pitch with over 45 players competing under the lights while raising money to support children suffering from cancer and their families.
“Shawn Kuykendall’s dream for Kuykenstrong was to unite the soccer community and help those suffering,” Kuykenstrong chairman Mike Foss said. “This tournament is the first of many future events that we hope will live up to his dream and continue Shawn’s legacy for years to come.”
The event raised over $4,000 for the Kuykenstrong Foundation. A special thanks to all of the volunteers who helped make this weekend possible.
