'Kicks for a Cure' April 21 
Local women's cancer research efforts will receive another helping hand through the second annual "Kicks for a Cure Women's Soccer Exhibition" event benefiting the Liz's Legacy Cancer Fund. Last year's inaugural event raised more than $107,000 for local research efforts at both UNMC Eppley Cancer Center and Creighton University Hereditary Cancer Center. This year's event will be held on Saturday, April 21 at Creighton's Morrison Soccer Stadium. Participating collegiate women's teams include host Creighton University, along with Marquette University, University of Nebraska-Omaha, Rockhurst University and top metro high school girls teams Omaha Westside, Millard North, Elkhorn and Gretna. The weekend benefit also includes an open-to-the-public dinner event with teams, sponsors and special guests from each of the benefiting institutions. Tickets for the soccer event are $8 for adults and $5 for students and are available at Creighton's Morrison Stadium, UNO ticket office or Soccer International. Visit any First National Bank to receive a $2 off coupon for the soccer event. For more information, visit www.kicksforacure.org.
