September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and the Dynamo and MLS have teamed up to help create awareness throughout the month.
This Saturday, the Houston Dynamo will be taking on the Portland Timbers and most importantly, they will be dedicating this game to raising awareness.
Before the game, the Dynamo will be hosting a Pre-game Head shave as a part of Bald Is Beautiful- outside of the stadium on Orange Avenue. Fans are encouraged to donate $10 to Curing Childhood Cancer fund and to shave their heads to show support for the battle to end Childhood Cancer.
Specially designed Kick Childhood Cancer T-Shirts and Scarves will be worn by players and coaches prior to the start of the match and can be purchased at the game, proceeds from the sale of these items goes back to Children’s Oncology Group.
Fans are encourage to post images of them holding up their scarves on Instagram and Twitter using the #ScarvesUp hashtag. For each post submitted with the hashtag, MLS will donate $1 to Children’s Oncology Group (we would love to get a photo with the anchors on Saturday holding up the scarf)
