Burlington charity football tournament returns after pandemic shutdown

Teams are back in action Saturday at the Ken Bradwell Soccer Tournament after an enforced hiatus due to COVID-19.

The fourth Ken Bradwell Soccer Tournament benefiting Halton Region Hospitals will take place on Saturday, September 3 at the Brant Hills Community Centre.

Teams from Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga and New York will face off between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the charity tournament, a joint partnership between the Burlington Old Timers Soccer Club and the Burlington Soccer Club. Proceeds will go to the Ken Bradwell Heart and Cancer Foundation, specifically cardiology equipment at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital, medical equipment for a new patient room at Joseph Brant Hospital and medical equipment for the treatment of cancer patients at the Juravinski Cancer Center.

Spectators are welcome and the public is invited to purchase a raffle ticket or make a donation. Online donations at all three hospitals are also welcome.

The foundation, set up in 2016 by Bradwell’s family and friends after the death of the longtime BSC player and manager, raises money for hospitals where he was treated for heart problems and indolent non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The soccer tournament and the Let’s Get Quizzical! quiz nights have raised nearly $57,000 since the first tournament in 2017.

To donate online, please visit the following hospital web pages: Joseph Brant; Oakville Trafalgar or Juravinski.
