The Eliot River Ramblers U12 girls' team is in the running to be named BMO Team of the Week 2012 Champion and win the grand prize, which includes $125,000 to upgrade their community soccer pitch.

The winning team will also win a road trip to see a Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact or Canadian National Team home game and a $5,000 donation to the charity of their choice. Canadians can log on to BMOsoccer.com to cast their vote. The team with the most number of votes will be the BMO Team of the Week 2012 Champion.

"These girls believe in giving back," said Coach Janos Barna. "This year they are helping train a group of young girls to show them how hard work, dedication and passion help to achieve any goal."

If the Ramblers are named the BMO Team of the Week 2012 Champion, BMO will make a $5,000 donation on their behalf to the Prince Edward Island Cancer Treatment Centre.
