ONU joins effort

ADA — The Ohio Northern University Women’s Soccer team has started off the new season with high expectations on the field; but the team is also hoping to have an impact off the field. The team has joined forces with Friends of Jaclyn; a foundation whose mission is to improve the quality of life for children battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood cancers to raise awareness through their Adopt-A-Child, Safe on the Sidelines and Guardian Angel Programs.

The team has recently adopted Tori, a 13-year-old girl who has been fighting cancerous tumors affecting her brain since she was 8 months old. The purpose of this program is to pair an afflicted child and their siblings/family members with a local high school or college sports team in their community.

For more information regarding the foundation and families it’s helped visit friendsofjaclyn.org.
