Calling all little leaguers! Grab your bat and glove and take a swing at cancer by joining the Jimmy Fund Little League Program presented by Extra Innings® to help support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
The program, in its twenty-seventh year, provides little leaguers of New England with the opportunity to continue to play baseball or softball after the conclusion of their regular season by participating in this local tournament and fundraising effort. These youngsters are given the opportunity to develop their athletic skills, build self-confidence, and, most importantly help others by fundraising in their local community.
Last summer, more than 5,000 children throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire participated and raised more than $230,000. To learn more about the Jimmy Fund Little League Program and how to get involved visit: www.jimmyfund.org/littleleague.
