Kid Captains: Weston and Bennett Openshaw


Whitecaps FC are honoured to have Weston and Bennett Openshaw from BC Children’s Hospital as Kid Captains for Saturday's home opener against Charlotte FC.

In April of 2022, Weston was diagnosed with Leukemia. At the time, doctors told his parents that his identical twin, Bennett, had a 20 percent chance of developing Leukemia. Four months after Weston's diagnosis, Bennett was also diagnosed with Leukemia. It's been an emotional, and physical marathon for Weston and Bennett's family. Despite their diagnosis, and with the help of the dedicated team at BC Children’s Hospital, the boys are their usual rambunctious selves.

Please join in welcoming Weston and Bennett to the match!
