Heartland Soccer is excited to once again partner with Tohi, title sponsor of the Midwest All Girls Tournament, and HCA Midwest Health as we GO PINK at SCHEELS Overland Park Soccer Complex for Breast Cancer Awareness.
The Midwest All Girls Tournament fueled by Tohi, the Official Healthy Lifestyle Beverage of Heartland Soccer, will be held October 2-4, 2020 at the SCHEELS Overland Park Soccer Complex. The tournament is set to boast over 300 teams from multiple states, drawing thousands of children, parents, grandparents and families from across the region in one of the Kansas City metropolitan area’s largest all-girl annual soccer tournaments.
Tohi is a Kansas City-based wellness brand innovating antioxidant-rich beverages from Aronia Berries grown in the Midwest. Tohi has all the attributes and functionality consumers value including non-GMO and Kosher certified, no sugar added and low in calories. The clean label beverages can be found at retail stores throughout the Midwest and online at drinktohi.com, Amazon and Walmart Marketplace. “Tohi beverages are beneficial for athletes of all ages and we are thrilled to be partnered with Heartland Soccer to reach families focused on a healthy, active lifestyle,” commented Shari Coulter Ford, CEO and Co-Founder of Tohi Ventures.
Heartland Soccer and Tohi, along with HCA Midwest Health will PINK OUT the SCHEELS Overland Park Soccer Complex tournament weekend. The GO PINK presence is designed to raise awareness for October’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and remind women to get their mammogram because early detection saves lives.
Field marshals and tournament staff will be dressed in PINK attire and fans and supporters are encouraged to wear PINK to show their support.
“We value our partnership with Heartland Soccer Association and SCHEELS Overland Park Soccer Complex as we work together to help keep kids safe on and off the fields,” says Dr. Anne Kobbermann, M.D. Board-certified and Fellowship-trained Breast Surgical Oncologist at Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Overland Park Regional and Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Menorah Medical Center. “We love this community event as it also gives us the opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of early detection-and that it helps saves lives when it comes to diagnosing and treating breast cancer.”
“Our partnership with HCA Midwest Health is a valuable asset to the community and to our organization as we make a positive impact with athlete’s safety on and off the field,” says Shane Hackett, Executive Director, Heartland Soccer Association. “This event has always been incredibly energizing. Saturday’s unique partnership will help raise awareness for a disease that affects thousands of women each year- and what better time to do that than during one of the region’s most popular all-girls tournaments.”
