BENEFITING: Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition
EVENT DATE: Jun 10, 2014
Welcome to Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer Home Run Derby at the Harrisburg Senators benefitting the PA Breast Cancer Coalition! We're so happy you have chosen to step up to the plate with us June 10 at Metro Bank Park.
This is the third year that RKL has entered a team to take part in this great event. Though the participants have changed, our passion about this event has remained the same. We are not expecting to hit many out of the park, but we will put a lot of effort into fundraising for such a great cause. Traditionally we've participated in the event at the York Revolution Stadium, and last year we were able to raise the most money of any team for that event. Since they are not holding it in York this year, we are moving our cause to Harrisburg in hopes of hitting a fundraising home run.
Just three months ago my Aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was a huge surprise to our whole family. She has gone through surgery to remove the mass which carried the cancerous cells. Currently she is enduring chemotherapy to kill any cells that have traveled to other parts of her body. Once through the chemo she will go through radiation treatment. My Aunt has been so strong througout the entire process, never getting discouraged and always keeping a positive attitude. She has been such an inspiration to everyone around her. Our family is positive that she will come out of this cancer free.
We want to thank everyone who has supported this cause through donations as well as the PA Breast Cancer Coalition for giving us the opportunity to participate in this event.
