“KICK IT: Vacate Children’s Cancer – September 19th – 3pm – after Akron Law Cares

The Student Bar Association is seeking your support for our annual Kick-It for the Cure event. KICK IT: Vacate Children’s Cancer will be held on September 19th, 2015 at 3 p.m. at The University of Akron’s Softball field (Lee Jackson). This year we have the pleasure of potentially hosting law students from both Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and Case Western Reserve University School of Law, so our expectations for this year’s event are HIGH.

We need your help to make our event a big success. We are requesting your time, donations, and participation at this year’s event. Every single donation is greatly appreciated! Additionally, this is the first year that Kick It falls on the same day as Akron Law Cares; thus we are looking forward to a great turn out and an amazing day of Akron Law Giving! More information on how to help will be disseminated at our first general body(s) meeting next Tuesday Sept 8th at 12:15 and 5:15 p.m. in room w-214.”
