The Concordia Stingers are excited to announce the return of the annual Erica Cadieux Memorial women's soccer game on Friday at 6 p.m. when the home team will take on the McGill Martlets.
This will be the 15th edition of the popular event which returns after a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cadieux, a former Stingers midfielder, was killed by a car in 2006. She was an accomplished lawyer, and a devoted wife and mother to two young girls when tragedy struck. She was just 34 years old.
Every year since, Cadieux’s family, former teammates and the Stingers have gathered to honour her at a soccer game. They share stories and remember the gifted young woman who played three seasons at Concordia (1992-94).
At the annual event, the Stingers encourage their fans and families to support the Montreal Children's Hospital. It’s an important part of honouring Cadieux.
Traditionally, gifts for the patients are collected and given to Child Life Department. However, this year the hospital cannot accept these due to pandemic health and safety regulations.
Uniquely, the Cadieux family and the Stingers are asking for money to be donated to the hospital.
Erica’s family will be on hand to visit with friends and supporters. They will also present a plaque to the captains of the winning team.
The game takes place at Concordia Stadium, 7200 Sherbrooke St. W.
