The Group's Purpose

I'm fundraising on behalf of my urban rec soccer team — The Advantage. Donate to this giving group and support The Kettle Society, who are doing great work in Vancouver mental health.

Additionally, if we raise enough money we stand to get our pick of one of the following prizes:

  1. A 90-minute appearance by Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson and a Whitecaps FC player of your choice.

  2. Whitecaps FC Suite Night Watch - Watch Whitecaps FC take on Sporting Kansas City in style with 15 of your friends, family, or co-workers on Sunday, August 10 from a Premium Suite in BC Place. Kickoff at 5:00 p.m. PT.

  3. 20 Whitecaps FC tickets - Thank 20 of your friends, family and co-workers for donating to your #BuckUp campaign by bringing them to the Whitecaps FC vs. Montreal Impact match on Wednesday, June 25 at BC Place. Kickoff at 7:00 p.m. PT.

How to Help

Consider a donation of $50 to support me, and #BuckUp for Mental Health. Proceeds will directly support Clara’s Big Ride Vancouver Community Champion – The Kettle Society – and the Canadian Mental Health Association, BC Division.

Anything you donate will help support these deserving causes and mental health programming in British Columbia.
