Victoria Highlanders Support The 2010 MS Kick For The Cure!

Once again the Victoria Highlanders have stepped up to be GOLD Sponsors for the 2010 MS KICK FOR THE CURE! We are very fortunate to have such a high profile organization support our cause!

General Manager Drew Finerty has been onboard with us from day one! Not only have the Highlanders sponsored financially but they have also helped to raise awareness about Multiple Sclerosis.

We will be having a mini game during halftime at the Victoria Highlanders vs. Victoria United "Derby" Match! Some of the lucky kids participating in the Youth portion of the MS KICK FOR THE CURE will be able to show their stuff in front of a packed house at Bear Mt. Stadium!

MS is a devastating disease which usually strikes young people between the ages of 15 to 40 and with the support of the Victoria Highlanders we are on our way to finding a cure.

Thank you so much!
