Proceeds benefit Caritas Family Solutions
Based on 108 strikeouts, each worth $29.48
My family and I have been strong supporters of adoption for as long as I can remember, as it’s what made our family complete. I hope that our story and my campaign will inspire others to learn more about the life-changing benefits of adoption. My mom adopted my little sister Reanna when she was 4 years old. I remember meeting her for the first time when my mom brought her to my high school baseball game. I knew even then she was going to change our lives for the better, and we would help change hers. Today Reanna is an avid piano player, swimmer, member of her school’s drama club, award-winning robotics team, and most importantly, a beloved daughter and little sister. I want to encourage other people to open their hearts to adoption and see the immense benefits not only for the child, but for the adoptive family.
This year, I am excited to continue my fundraising efforts focusing closer to home by donating to Caritas Family Solutions. Every time I take the mound to pitch, I’m going to donate $25 for each one of my strikeouts. Each pledge or donation will go to the children at St. John Bosco Children’s Center in Belleville, Illinois. I’m excited to pitch for Reanna and the children near my hometown who will hopefully have an opportunity to have a life like ours.
