Xiatech launches charity football match to raise awareness of testicular cancer
At 6pm on Tuesday, 30 May 2023, Xiatech’s employees will unleash their amateur, desk-bound footballers to compete against one another – and some fiercely competitive customers and partners – during a fundraiser match at Camden Rhino Turf.
With a strong mix of ‘ballers’ and maybe not so ‘ballers’, our team plans to raise £3,000 for The Oddballs Foundation (No. 1164815), which helps men of all ages go through testicular cancer and raise awareness of checking themselves on a regular basis.
In the United Kingdom this year, approximately 2,300 men of all ages will be diagnosed with testicular cancer. For many, it’s a lonely experience as they undergo treatment.
Rich Vaughan, Transformational Consultant at Xiatech, said about the fundraiser: “Last year, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and they, along with Xiatech, gave me the emotional and physical support I needed to get through the experience. Please support our fundraising campaign because it will make a huge difference in the lives of your husbands, brothers, sons, friends and colleagues.”
“We are thankful to companies like Xiatech that raise money to support our important work of helping to improve the health of men around the world. Every contribution, large and small, has a lasting impact on people’s lives for years to come,” said Kieran Kelly, Foundation Manager of The OddBalls Foundation. “The work we do would not be possible without the support from companies like Xiatech. It’s been a pleasure working with Rich to share his experience with testicular cancer across our platforms to help raise awareness and encourage more people to check themselves on a regular basis.”
Donations of all sizes are welcome and will help us to achieve our fundraising target. Tickets are also available to watch the big game and/or join the afterparty. To purchase, please donate a minimum of £10 with the message “Ticket”, and we’ll add you to our guest list.
After the game, we will be hosting some well-earned drinks and nibbles from 8pm at The Princess of Wales Pub, 22 Chalcot Rd, London NW1 8LL.
