About SOCCER FOR HOPE

SOCCER FOR HOPE is a non-profit organization founded by Oliver and Jamie Wyss in 1998. Oliver is a former professional soccer player and survivor of a non-cancerous illness, Aplastic Anemia, thanks to a bone marrow transplant. The organization has been driven by their goal to raise desperately needed funds and awareness for children with life threatening diseases.
