High school soccer team raises money for The Brady Urological Institute to honor their coach, a Hopkins alumnus
Posted December 19, 2017
  • The Towson High School boys soccer team visited the Johns Hopkins medical campus last spring after raising nearly $1,000 for The Brady Urological Institute in honor of their coach, Hopkins alumnus Randy Dase (standing, far right). Alan Partin (standing, far left), Dase's physician and chairman of The Brady Institute, hosted the visit.

  • During their tour, the team also visited the Johns Hopkins Medicine Minimally Invasive Surgical and Innovation Training Center.

In September 2016, Randy Dase, A&S '76, missed one of the most meaningful games of his 30-year career as coach of the Towson (Md.) High School boys soccer team. Dase was receiving treatment for prostate cancer at the Johns Hopkins James Buchanan Brady Urological Institute, and his players worked with their athletic director to donate one game's proceeds to benefit the institute during National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. The team won its game, and the event raised nearly $1,000.

This year, the school decided to host a sequel — this time, with Dase healthy and on the sidelines. The Generals won again, 3-0, and raised $1,200.

But the team's relationship with The Brady Institute isn't limited to fundraising. Earlier this year, the team traveled to Hopkins to learn more about men's health and urological cancers. Watch a short video highlighting the team's visit to The Brady Institute.
