Hundreds of young soccer players took the field this weekend at Manchester Meadows in Rock Hill, SC with the goal to kick cancer.

Shana Shivel, Co-Founder was inspired to start up the Kickin' It Challenge after losing her mother to breast cancer.

"I lost my mom in 2008 to breast cancer," said Shivel. "It's very rampant in my family, I've lost four other aunts as well."

Shivel and Co-Founder Sarah Morris, who is an OBGYN in the area, urge women to get themselves tested.

"Now you can be tested for a couple of genes for breast cancer which is very important," said Morris. "You can go to your regular physician or OGBYN and be tested."

The entire event was over a three day period, starting on Friday with a kick off party and silent auction. The group raised $30,000 for the auction alone. Most of that money will stay in York County. Other proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen, Charlotte and the Carolinas Healthcare System - Levine Cancer Institute.

"It's (money) all going to programs specifically with a portion going to research," said Shivel.

Shivel can't take all the credit though, she said there was an entire team that worked many hours over the course of the last year to put this tournament together.

"We've finally seen our dream come true," said Shivel.
