TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Former Seminole Soccer greats, including India Trotter, Libby Gianeskis, Ali Mims and Amber Tollefson, will return to Tallahassee on Saturday, March 28 to reminisce and compete in an alumni soccer match to benefit charity. The game takes place at 12:00 p.m. at the Seminole Soccer Complex and all fan donations will benefit the GIVE `N GO program and the Florida State University Relay for Life campaign.
GIVE `N GO is a charity created by Seminole Soccer alumna Amber Tollefson, with the intent to increase soccer participation among youth in impoverished countries. Tollefson has already traveled to Costa Rica and Nicaragua to provide equipment and lessons to children, and hopes to visit more countries in South America to spread her message.
Florida State University hosts one of the largest Relay for Life events in the state of Florida. The 18-hour walkathon is held annually in the spring on Mike Long Track, but donations are accepted year round and benefit the American Cancer Society and cancer research.
In addition to the alumnae game, the day’s events include a spring exhibition game between Florida State and Auburn at 2:00 p.m. followed by a luncheon for the former and current players.
Individuals unable to make it to the game but would like to make a donation to these great charities should sent all donations via mail to Florida State Soccer, P.O. Box 2195, Tallahassee, FL 32316. Checks should be made payable to Relay for Life and/or GIVE `N GO.
