K CANCER BASEBALL
In 2014, a group of 13-year-old travel baseball players, together with their mentors, decided to do something to support local families battling childhood cancer. A local 501(c)(3) non-profit, K Cancer Baseball, was born with two goals:
Help local families who are battling childhood cancer
Train and equip the next generation of socially conscious leaders
All too quickly, the boys turned into 17-year-old young men who were getting ready to head off to college! A decision was made to bring on a girls' travel softball team 4 years younger than the guys. The girls have gone through their business training and have taken over the reins of the organization and re-branded the organization as K Cancer Softball.
The girls of K Cancer Softball are now Juniors and Seniors in High School. We are currently looking for a baseball team that we can welcome into the program and begin the process all over again!
If you know of a baseball team that would like to do, and be, more than just a baseball team, let us know! We are looking for a group that is local to the Greater Rockford Area and plays at the 11 year old age group for 2022.
