The UAB Soccer For A Cure Classic was the brain child of Mike Getman, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) head men's soccer Coach. It has been played on the UAB campus each year since 2008 raising donations for the UAB Children's Hospital in Birmingham, AL.

Soccer For A Cure was launched in 2008 with the objective of raising money through soccer events for families that are struggling financially because a family member is in a battle with cancer.

If you live in or near Birmingham, AL and have a passion for helping families that are in a battle with cancer, please let us know by e-mail to Our goal for the 2011 event, which will be played in September, is to reach out to as many communities in the Birmingham area as possible and invite families to make a modest donation of $5.00 or more to the UAB Hospital through this event.
