BENEFITING: HAZLET YOUTH ATHLETIC LEAGUE INC
Hazlet Youth Athletic League together with the New Jersey Hitmen travel baseball & softball organization, are organizations with similar goals to foster good sportsmanship and build character within our youth by providing meaningful experiences for them. While teaching the fundamentals of the sports, we continually work on emphasizing and encouraging our kids to respect themselves, their teammates, opponents, umpires, coaches, fans, and parents. We stress the importance of volunteering and giving back to our community. Youth who are involved in athletics gain skills that translate to all areas of life from social situations to business dealings later in life. On October 16, 2015 the New Jersey Hitmen together with the Hazlet Youth Athletic League, in partnership with Breast Intentions Inc., will host the second annual fundraiser, Going To Bat Against Breast Cancer. The goal of Breast Intentions is to provide financial support for women and their families as they battle breast cancer and also, to educate young women about breast health and the need for regular breast self-examinations. Breast Intentions also provides advice and support with insurance issues, treatment experiences and support groups. We are honored to be partnering with them. We hope to make a powerful impact on families living with breast cancer, but also on the larger community as a whole in the fight against cancer, by donating 100% of the funds we raise.
