Honorary Team Members

Houston Dynamo FC and the Houston Dash were unable to host our Kick Childhood Cancer honorary team members in person in 2021, but that did not stop us from recognizing these courageous kids and letting them know we care. Prior to the Houston Dynamo game on Friday, September 3rd, each of the 18 dressing players wore the name of a Pediatric Cancer patient from MD Anderson on the back of their Kick Childhood Cancer Warm-up Top.  After the match, each top was signed by the player who wore it during the game and was added to a special gift bag for each child. Each gift bag included the warm-up top, Houston Dynamo FC and Houston Dash items as well as a very special honorary contract for each child.
