We are proud to announce that this year we will be teaming up with the Keep CJ Strong team to help bring awareness to childhood cancer and The National Bone Marrow Registry, Be The Match. CJ is a 3 year old soccer player from Northwest Indiana that is battling a rare form of blood cancer (AMKL) and has recently undergone a bone marrow transplant to survive. His father, Carlos Moreno is a member of the Hammond soccer community, as well as an avid volunteer and participant of the Hammond Mayor’s Cup. Be The Match helped give CJ a second chance at life so now Carlos and his family are on a mission to help others like CJ get their second chance at life as well.
We encourage everyone to stop by the KeEP CJ Strong table to learn how you can register with Be The Match. The registration process is quick, free, and easy. All it takes is 5 minutes of your time and a simple cheek swab to see if you’re someone’s life saving hero!
We wish CJ and his family the best of luck during their road to recovery. We look forward to seeing CJ back on the soccer field very soon!
