It’s September and this month MLS W.O.R.K.S, the league’s community outreach initiative, is celebrating Children’s Cancer Awareness Month with its “Soccer Kicks Cancer” campaign. This year, MLS W.O.R.K.S has partnered with Children’s Oncology Group (COG), the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to childhood and adolescent cancer research.

In an effort to help raise awareness and funds for the cause, Chivas USA will host their Childhood Cancer Awareness (CCA) Night in the Red-and-White’s match against reigning MLS Cup Champion, Sporting KC on Friday at 7:30 p.m. (PT) at the StubHub Center. As part of the campaign, CCA pin-up paper scarfs will be available for purchase for the minimum donation of $1 and they will be displayed in and around the stadium. All funds will be split 50/50 between local and national COG beneficiaries.

Additionally, Chivas USA and Sporting KC players will be wearing special “Soccer Kicks Cancer” t-shirts during the initial ceremonies and national anthem. Chivas USA Head Coach Wilmer Cabrera, as well as Sporting KC Head Coach Peter Vermes, will also wear yellow Soccer Kicks Cancer scarves throughout the match.

A little over a year ago, Chivas USA lost U-18 defender and team captain Julio Chavez in a tragic car accident in Modesto, Calif. But on Sunday night, Chivas USA had the honor to welcome Chavez’s surviving family, parents Francisco and Isabel Chavez, as well as his four siblings Francisco, Claudia, Rafael and Cecilia.

The family was presented a special captain’s armband, specially designed in honor of Chavez by local artist Uriel Bautista, before the start of the match, armband that goalkeeper Dan Kennedy will wear in Sunday night’s match. Additionally, all Red-and-White Youth Development team captains will wear the armband for the upcoming 2014/15 USSDA season that kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 6 in Bell Gardens.

Chávez, who had been a part of Chivas USA’s Youth Academy for over three years, worked hard to become what he always dreamed of, a professional soccer player. In the 2012/2013 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season, the Modesto, Calif. native played 13 games (eight starts) since an ACL tear cut his season in half.

Despite his injury, Chavez, who lived with a family in Southern California, continued attending his team’s training sessions in the City of Bell Gardens and was even able to recover ahead of planned. Outside of the field, Chavez was a great student, graduating from Birmingham High School in 2012. His performance in the classrooms and on the field led him to earn a full scholarship to attend the California State University in Los Angeles.

The Chivas USA organization welcomes the Chavez family and remembers the forever captain.

Hace poco más de un año, Chivas USA perdió al defensa y capitán de la Sub-18 Julio Chávez en un trágico accidente automovilístico en Modesto, Calif. Pero la tarde del domingo, Chivas USA tuvo el honor de darle la bienvenida a sus padres, Francisco e Isabel Chávez, al igual que a sus cuatro hermanos, Francisco, Claudia, Rafael y Cecilia.

La familia fue presentada con una banda de capitán especialmente diseñada por el artista local Uriel Bautista antes del arranque del partido, banda que el arquero Dan Kennedy portará en el partido del domingo. Además, todos los capitanes de la Academia de Desarrollo Rojiblanca portarán la banda durante la temporada 2014/15 que arrancará el 6 de septiembre en Bell Gardens.

Chávez, había sido parte de la Academia de Chivas USA por más de tres años, trabajando arduamente para convertirse en lo que más soñaba, ser futbolista profesional. En la temporada 2012/2013 de la Academia de Desarrollo de la Federación de Futbol, Chávez, originario de Modesto, había disputado 13 partidos (ocho de ellos como titular) ya que una ruptura de ligamento cruzado anterior cortó su temporada a la mitad.

A pesar de su lesión, Chávez, quien vivía con una familia en el Sur de California, continuaba asistiendo los entrenamientos de su equipo en la Ciudad de Bell Gardens y pudo recuperarse de su lesión más pronto de lo planeado. Fuera de las canchas, Chávez era un gran estudiante, graduándose de la Preparatoria Birmingham el año pasado. El desempeño en las aulas y en las canchas no se fueron apercibidas, y estaba listo para asistir a la Universidad Estatal de California en Los Ángeles con una beca completa.

La familia de Chivas USA le da la bienvenida a la Familia Chávez y recuerda al eterno capitán.
