WASHINGTON - The Georgetown men's soccer program will take to the pitch this Saturday night, April 13, at UMBC to help raise funds to benefit children born with Down syndrome. The "Kicks for Chase" game will be played in the memory of Chase Burgarin, the son of former UMBC player Bryan Bugarin, at UMBC's Retriever Soccer Park starting at 7 p.m.

Despite the compelling matchup between the 2012 National Runner-Up Hoyas and the America East champion Retrievers most minds and hearts will be on raising funds for children born with Down syndrome and honoring the memory of Chase.

In September of 2012, Chase Ryan Bugarin was welcomed into the world by parents Bryan (UMBC Soccer 1992-95) and Amy. Chase was born with Down syndrome along with other serious complications. After an 11-week fight, Chase passed away and though he is no longer with us, his memory lives on. He is survived by parents Bryan and Amy along with siblings Jordyn (9) and Brayden (2).

All proceeds from the game will be donated to The Arc Foundation of Harford County (Northern Chesapeake Region), a private, non-profit local chapter of The Arc of Maryland and The Arc of The United States.

For 60 years, The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region (Arc NCR) has helped individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities live independently. Through advocacy, resources, and community building they promote self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Admission to the game is free but donations toward The Arc will be accepted at the door and through the mail for anyone who cannot attend the game. Also 100% of the profits from all concessions and t-shirt sales will go to The Arc.

Checks can be made payable to The Arc Northern Chesapeake Region and donators can mark "Kicks for Chase" in the subject line. If you cannot attend the game, but would still like to donate, please mail checks to: UMBC Athletics, c/o Kelly Fahey, Assistant AD for Student-Athlete Affairs, 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, Md. 21250
