The Storm Soccer U-12 'C' Boys' 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 champion team will also win a $5,000 donation to the charity of their choice and a road trip to see a Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, Montreal Impact or Canadian National Team home game. 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.
"The Storm prove that hard work and dedication do, in fact, pay off," said Storm Soccer U-12 'C' Boys' Head Coach Sam Tohme. "As a result of their efforts, these boys have a fierce confidence that makes them leaders, which they demonstrate by mentoring younger soccer teams. Thank you, BMO, for recognizing what an incredible group of young men we have on this team!"
When not rallying for votes, the Dartmouth boys can be seen giving back to the local community. Not only did the team clean up their neighbourhood field, they volunteered at the local soup kitchen by running a food drive.
