The Blackduck varsity and junior high softball teams have teamed up with Coaches vs. Cancer to host a hit-a-thon April 21 to raise money for cancer awareness. You can sponsor a member of the softball team for an amount per foot of the hit or you can name a set amount that you are willing to donate. Each player will receive five attempts or swings.


Coaches vs. Cancer is a program that empowers coaches, their team and communities to make a difference in the fight against cancer. They have helped raise significant money and awareness for the American Cancer Society.

The hit-a-thon will begin on the varsity softball field at 11 a.m. April 21. Hot dogs, chips and a pop may be purchased for $1.00. All money raised from this event will go to the American Cancer Society. Following the hit-a-thon the athletes will play their parents in a softball game.
