The Wildcats Kick It for Kids with Cancer

Again this season, the Saint Ignatius Wildcats, led by the special teams unit, are raising money for children’s cancer research through the Kick-It Champion program. Join us to reach our goal of raising $1 million by the end of the season!
Again this season, the Saint Ignatius Wildcats, led by the special teams unit, are raising money for children’s cancer research through the Kick-It Champion program.

In 2013, Ohio All-State football player, Matt Colella ’14, who battled cancer as a middle school student, started the Kick-It Champion program at Saint Ignatius by asking others to pledge a dollar amount for each point he made as the Wildcat’s kicker or to make a one-time donation towards his fundraising goal. Thanks to Matt’s efforts, athletes across the country have participated in the program. To date, more than $900,000 has been raised for children’s cancer research!

Now, six years later, students from Saint Ignatius High School are still participating in hopes to end childhood cancer.


You can support the Wildcats and join in the fight to beat childhood cancer by pledging a dollar amount for every point scored through kicking this season or by making a one-time donation. Three games remain in the regular season, but the challenge will also remain active during the postseason.
