The Indiana University men's soccer team is inviting fans to take part in the "Kick For Nick" program, which collects soccer balls for children in Iraq. Supporters are being asked to bring a new soccer ball for donation to Wednesday's match against Butler at 7 p.m. at Armstrong Stadium. Anyone donating a ball will receive free admission to the match. "Kick for Nick" was founded in honor of Private Nicholas Madaras who was killed in the line of duty in Iraq in September 2006. A former soccer player, Madaras was home on leave in July 2006 and had the idea to collect soccer balls to bring back to the children who lived near his post. Shortly after his death the program was founded and soccer balls from 45 of the 50 states have been collected and distributed overseas.
