H.S., College Athletes Fight Against Breast Cancer
Saint Francis Medical Center will partner with local high school and college athletes this week to raise funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer. Funds raised will go to the Dig for Life campaign, which provides free mammograms for local women who could not otherwise afford them.
Notre Dame Regional High School will launch Athletes for Life, an adaptation of the successful Dig for Life campaign, on April 14. The Notre Dame Bulldog baseball team will sponsor a Pink Out Game in cooperation with Charleston High School, with pregame festivities beginning at 5:45 pm. Students will sell Notre Dame Athletes for Life T-shirts and baseball caps to raise funds, as well as collect donations at the gate and during the fifth inning stretch. The game will begin at 6 pm.
Southeast Missouri State University men's baseball will kick off the first RBIs for Life campaign, an extension of Dig for Life, on April 15 with head coach Mark Hogan's seventh annual Joe Uhls Golf Tournament at Bent Creek Golf Course. In the RBIs for Life campaign donors will make pledges per Redhawks RBI. During the tournament, a signed pink authentic Louisville Slugger® bat featuring autographs of current and past St. Louis Cardinals players, including Ozzie Smith, will be auctioned off.
