#goalmtl – If you’re a community-minded soccer fan, then you certainly don’t want to miss a two-day wellness festival and soccer tournament on July 6 and 7 at Percival Molson Stadium that will benefit the GOAL Initiatives Foundation, which helps to empower communities and its citizens to take control of their wellness by creating events and experiences along with a group of visionary partners, which in turn gives back to the community. Admission is free to the two-day event.
