Last year, the Haiti National Soccer Team won on penalty kicks in overtime, 4-1. The game against Harvard’s men’s soccer team was a fundraiser for Harvard-affiliated Partners In Health. This year the event will take place April 22 at Harvard Stadium.

Raises money for Partners In Health cholera vaccine program

The Haitian National Soccer Team will take on the Harvard Crimson on April 22 for the second annual Haiti Leve (Haiti Rises) match at Harvard Stadium.

 Proceeds from this exhibition game will benefit Partners In Health‘s (PIH) work in Haiti to fight cholera and help rebuild the health system from the catastrophic 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince. Last year’s game drew thousands of fans to Harvard Stadium and raised $16,000.

The event begins at 3 p.m. in the Fan Zone where members of the Haitian National team will be signing autographs. Enjoy live Haitian music by singer-songwriter Wanito, and talk to PIH staff about its ongoing work. Kickoff is at 5 p,m.

Admission is $10 and can be purchased at the game or in advance at the Harvard Box Office.
