Les Griffons MU-10A du CSMRO are 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 champion 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.

"Griffons' coaches and families work hard to ensure that these young boys will grow up to be good young men," said Joel Clancy, Head Coach of Les Griffons MU-10A du CSMRO. "I am proud of their accomplishments on the field, and the work they do to give back. Right now, the team is raising funds to host a youth boys soccer team from Haiti - a big undertaking. I have no doubt that our boys will see this through to completion, and learn something along the way."

If named the BMO Team of the Week 2012 Champion, the team would designate the $5,000 donation from BMO to the Haiti project.
