Keeper for a cure was created by Brady Krysiewicz, a then 9 year old goalkeeper from Virginia. Brady has always understood that his job on the field it is to protect the goal and communicate with his teammates. But, during his soccer training sessions, Brady's coaches reminded him that his goalkeeper training is also teaching him to be a leader, and they encouraged him to use his leadership skills off the field as well.
Brady was inspired and got right to work. Because Brady has family members who have battled breast cancer, he decided to raise money for Breast Cancer awareness, funding and research.
As he organized and fundraised for Keeper for a Cure, Brady realized he could have even more influence if he could get other goalkeepers involved. In Soccer, the goalkeeper has the back of his or her teammates. Brady's goal is to get more goalkeepers to join together to have the back of their communities.
Brady is a 11 year old goalkeeper from Madison Heights Virginia and currently playing for Sporting Kansas City Academy and also Skyline organization in Charlottesville Virginia. He has been playing soccer since he was 3 years old and started playing goalie at 6 years old.
Besides playing soccer, Brady likes to hang out with his friends, play with his younger sister Charlotte and play video games. Bradys goals are to be a pro goalkeeper for the first team at Sporting Kansas City and one day becoming a coach.
