Soccer & Family Friends--Let's Kick our collective power together to get a Bike for a tremendously inspired kid...

Kicks For a Cause Annual Bradley Metts 3v3 Soccer Tournament is raising funds this winter for 'A Bike for Bradley'.

I'm Tad Albano, and I operate a soccer based business in Southeastern Ohio. I remember hearing the news that a player from our local soccer league  fell into a sudden coma; I felt an immediate kinship with Bradley and his family and understood that soccer could raise the funds and inspire Bradley back onto the pitch someday.

Bradley has made tremendous progress in recovery, and until he can play the sport he loves again, Kicks for a Cause will organize and play games to assist him in his return to the pitch!  

That is the mission.

Our Goal this time in 2017 is $3000.  Hoping to get Bradley a TriCycle and fund the field rental.  We will play our tournament at Walter FieldHouse on March 18th on the campus of Ohio University in Athens.





Here is the short history of what we raised and how it was spent-
2016--Raised Approximately $4000 for the Aquachair
2015--Raised Approximately $2000 for Bradley's continued Rehabilitation
2014 Raised Approximately $1000 for Bradley's room renovation so he could come home.

at walking the next step
a getting a 24" for Brook.

So I'm raising the goal,
cuz we still have some teams
