The team is playing in Chattanooga as part of its Women's World Cup victory tour.

The U.S. Women's World Cup team has raised more than $60,000 to benefit the Chattanooga Heroes Fund.

The team held an online auction for autographed, game-worn jerseys of the players to raise a total of $63,924.

Funds donated to the Chattanooga Heroes Fund benefit the families of the victims from the July 16 tragedy in Chattanooga in which five U.S. servicemen were killed.

U.S. defender Ali Krieger's jersey drew the highest winning bid of $11,100 while goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris' jerseys went for $9,100 and Alex Morgan's went for $7,900.

"We are fortunate to be able to play the game we love and inspire others, and to have the opportunity to help the fund and help the families of the victims is the least we can do," Krieger said.
