Blueboys to host "Rally for Robbie" game October 20
When IC and Beloit College meet on the afternoon of October 20, the men’s soccer team will be looking to raise funds for senior Robbie Lopez, who was diagnosed with brain cancer this summer.
The Illinois College men's soccer team will celebrate the career of Robbie Lopez '19 and raise funds for his medical treatment on October 20 when the Blueboys host Beloit College at England Stadium at 1:30 p.m.
Lopez was a three-year member of the Illinois College men's soccer team. He was working his way back from a knee injury in his junior season. This summer, he was diagnosed with brain cancer and is currently undergoing treatment.
T-shirts with the "Rally for Robbie" slogan have been on sale and a limited supply will be available the day of the match. The Blueboys hope to fill the crowd with those shirts as he celebrates his own personal Senior Day with his family as well as his brother and teammate Christian Lopez. All proceeds from the sales will go to help offset his family's medical expenses as he continues his treatments.
