Kyle Seager of the Seattle Mariners is inviting fans to step up to the plate to support children battling cancer during the 2016 MLB season. Last year the Seager Vs. Cancer campaign raised over $60,000 for childhood cancer research.
Fans can pledge to donate for each hit recorded by Kyle Seager. He's going to step up to the plate to see if he can record more hits than he did last year to help children battling cancer, and their families. Fans can pledge by visiting: pledgeit.org/seagervscancer.
“PLEDGE IT is a great way for fans to have a personal connection to their favorite player, combined with how easy it is for fans to pledge and give back to the Seattle community. I love knowing that my hits are earning donations for a cause I care about.” - Kyle Seager
Proceeds from Kyle Seager's "Seager Vs. Cancer campaign will benefit the Vs. Cancer Foundation and Seattle Children's Hospital.
The Vs. Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving the lives of children by funding international cancer research projects and supporting local children’s hospitals. The Vs. Cancer Foundation was started in 2013 by Chase Jones, a brain cancer survivor and one of Kyle Seager’s teammates on the UNC Tar Heels baseball team.
Half of all proceeds from this campaign will be given to child life programs at Seattle Children’s Hospital, while the remaining half funds cancer research with Strong Against Cancer.
