PMC Helps Launch "Defeat the Heat" Campaign

By lending its soccer field for the morning, Pine Manor College helped launch the Defeat the Heat campaign aimed at preventing dehydration among children participating in sports. Kristine Lilly, a member of the US Women’s Soccer National Team and the Boston Breakers, spoke briefly to kick off the event, and then proceeded to participate in a mini-clinic with 20 youngsters from the FC Greater Boston Bolts youth soccer club. The drills were led by the husband and wife team of John Kerr, Head Men’s Soccer Coach at Harvard University, and Tracy Kerr, Head Women’s Soccer Coach at Providence College. Defeat the Heat is a partnership between Gatorade, the National Athletics Trainer’s Association and the National Safe Kids Campaign.
