Ryerson students came together for a soccer tournament to raise money for tsunami relief efforts.

The tournament featured six teams playing for bragging rights and a DVD player. “It was to raise money for tsunami efforts,” said organizer Harry Paul, president of Ryerson’s Winners Fellowship christian group.

“We just thought it’d be a cool thing.” The money will be donated to World Impact Ministries, a group which has members and missionaries in regions affected by the recent tsunamis.

The fellowship raised $500 over last week’s events. They chose soccer as a sport most people could just come and play for fun. The Advertising, aimed at residence students and RAC users, helped recruit teams.

Marco Pelliccia, a third-year Hospitality and Tourism Management student, said his team came from Pitman Hall.

“We saw the advertising in residence,” he said. “We thought it would be a good opportunity to come out and support a good cause. “It’s well worth it.”
