LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. -- Soccer players came together on Saturday to support cancer research.

Conestoga Valley High School held the second leg of its 4th Annual Red Card Cancer Fundraiser between its soccer teams and the Manheim Township soccer teams.

The first leg of the games were held back in September where the CV boys beat Manheim Township 3 - 2 and the township girls took the lead with a 1-0 victory.

But a volunteer for the event says it's all about the cause, not just winning.

"I just love it, I just think it's awesome to see everybody come out and at least one day everybody's friends whether you win or lose, everybody comes together for the same reason," Judy Hertzler, a volunteer coordinator said. "I think it's just very important to know that people are out there that are struggling every day."

Leading up to the game, the teams sold Red Card Cancer T-shirts to raise money for the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center in Baltimore.
