Nelson soccer kicks off for Kerry Dyck

A weekend fundraising tournament raised $3,000 for the NYS president, who has cancer

The Nelson soccer community came together for one of its own on Saturday.

Players took to the Lakeside Park fields on Saturday to compete in a fundraising tournament for Nelson Youth Soccer president Kerry Dyck. The co-ed event raised $3,000 for Dyck, who is battling lung and brain cancer but played anyway.

Online donations to the Dyck family can be made at www.gofundme.com/kerry-dyck-medical-care-assistance.
