Kuemper Catholic and Glidden-Ralston high schools’ softball teams will step up to the plate in the fight against cancer on Tuesday, June 29.
The schools’ varsity teams will square off in a cancer-awareness game at 7:30 p.m. at Carroll Softball Stadium.
Admission will be a freewill donation, with proceeds going toward the new St. Anthony Cancer Center.
“With your support, our efforts will strike out cancer!” says a news release on the game.
A banner will be hung at the game, featuring names of those who have fought cancer. For $15, you can include a loved one’s name on the banner. Businesses may advertise in honor of one person for $50. Contact Jamie Venteicher at 712-830-4021 or email@example.com. Checks may be donated payable to Kuemper Catholic School, “softball cancer event” as the memo.
Family members of some players have been impacted by cancer, and some players’ family members work in the Cancer Center.
Efforts are underway for the teams to wear special uniforms: blue for Kuemper to represent colon cancer, and pink for Glidden to recognize breast cancer.
