CofC Softball Aims to StrikeOut Cancer

source:  The College of Charleston softball team is preparing for its StrikeOut Cancer initiative during which the Cougars will raise money and awareness for brain cancer research. The campaign culminates with CofC’s upcoming doubleheader against Drexel at Patriots Point on Saturday, April 26 at 4 p.m.

The Cougars are working on earning “K Pledges” which will allow fans to donate a dollar amount for every strikeout thrown by either team in the doubleheader.

The Cougars will also wear special-edition gray jerseys for brain cancer awareness, and fans will have the opportunity to bid on all of the players’ game-worn jerseys with proceeds going directly to cancer research.

Supporters will have the opportunity to make personal donations as well.

The event is being held in honor of CofC senior Kelsey Hodgson’s father who is courageously battling brain cancer and will throw out the first pitch of the doubleheader.

Last season, the Cougars raised over $1,300 with their Beat Cancer with a Bat campaign and are excited to further their efforts at striking out this terrible disease.
