Calling all local Childhood Cancer Families! September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Join us on Saturday, September 8th at Rivets Stadium as we support our families battling childhood cancer, increase awareness to local childhood cancer issues, and have fun!
The festivities kick off at 1:00 pm in Rivets Stadium parking lot with our annual Fire Truck Pull! Teams compete to see who can pull a Fire Engine 90 feet the fastest! There will be prizes for the fastest team and the team with the most Team Spirit! Look in the fire truck and you will find one of our local childhood cancer patients shouting encouragement to their team!
From 2:00 to 3:00 pm, the free activity booths will open up inside Rivets Stadium. Head on over to our SLIME STATION to make gold slime. Get your face painted by our creative geniuses before you head into the photo booth. Participate in one of the kids games and win a prize! Don’t forget, Rivets Stadium Concessions will be open with discounted ballpark fare that is free for our Childhood Cancer families!
At 3 o’clock things get serious! The gauntlet was thrown down and the K Cancer Baseball & Softball Team will once again take on Senator Syverson’s “Dream Team” in the Celebrity Softball Game! Each team has won a game over the past two years so you won’t want to miss the Rubber Match! The game is great fun, but the best part of the whole affair is when our local childhood cancer patients throw out their ceremonial first pitch and head into the dugouts to coach the teams!
What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon in September, having safe kid friendly fun, and supporting those in our community who need it the most!
