One of our main goals at CureSearch is to accelerate cancer research so children can have a long, healthy life. We want kids to be kids and experience all the fun aspects of childhood, like going to school, making friends and playing sports like baseball.
Speaking of baseball, there’s a remarkable group of 12 to 14-year-olds who are not only playing the sport this summer, they’re also giving back to the childhood cancer community. They’re known as the 2016 Summer Tour Team of Jeff Potter Baseball.
Jeff Potter Baseball is an organization that makes playing baseball both fun and educational. Kids get to build their skills with other like-minded players, while at the same time participate in community service in towns they visit.
The 2016 Summer Tour Team is made up of 24 baseball players who will run 12 baseball clinics and participate in 16 Tour baseball games over the course of 26 days. They’ll take their game to 20+ cities throughout Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
Starting this weekend, the Team will participate in a series of fundraising events in support of the North Park CureSearch Hike. On Sunday, July 10, a Potter Baseball Tour Day of Fun will take place in Arnold, Maryland, and next Thursday, July 14, there will be a Potter Co-Ed Volleyball Tournament in Butler, Pennsylvania. Then, the CureSearch Hike event takes place on Saturday, July 16 in Allison Park, Pennsylvania.
You can join them by registering or donating at www.ultimatehike.org/northpark.
We are extremely thankful to the Potter Baseball Summer Tour Team for teaming up to tell cancer to take a hike, and we can’t wait to hear more about their Ultimate Hike experience.
Stay tuned for a blog post during the week of July 18th that highlights the big event.
