Tampa Bay Rays Support Children's Cancer Awareness
September game dedicated to CureSearch for Children's Cancer

Rays Game First PitchOn September 18th, CureSearch was honored to host the Community Corner at the Tampa Bay Rays game in St. Petersburg, FL. Volunteers spent the first innings passing out information about CureSearch and educating those in attendance about the importance of increased funding for children's cancer research.

The Tampa Bay Rays made the day special for everyone in attendance, especially the Getty family and their son Jake, who is a six-year-old leukemia survivor who loves baseball, Legos, and drawing. Before the game started, the Getty family received a special tour of the field and stadium, met some of the players and received their autographs.

The game was the perfect opportunity to celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, which took place in September, and helped spread awareness about the 36 children who are diagnosed with cancer every day.

CureSearch is grateful to organizations like the Tampa Bay Rays for their continued support and dedication to raising awareness for children's cancer.
