It matters…

Last year we personalized the annual Wacky charity softball tournament to include our local “Cancer Cuties.”  I reached out to some of the moms I knew from CureSearch in the Salt Lake area and asked permission to make a poster of their child that included a picture and a very short bio.  Each team playing in our tournament adopted a Cancer Cutie to play for throughout the weekend and displayed their poster in their dugout during each game.  We also displayed the posters along the hallways of the main pavilions.  Some Cuties came to help hand out tee shirts to teams as they were eliminated. Towards the end of the tournament, the 14u teams decided to forfeit the championship game due to weather and asked me to forward their trophies on to the Cuties. I also knew one or two coaches made personal contact with their Cutie that extended beyond the tournament.  It wasn’t until I began asking permission from the moms again this year that I learned quite a bit more.

Lee and Carly flew in to Orlando (Carly in from Hawaii where she is attending college – rough life) a few days before Kelsey and I (Kelsey had a softball tournament) to get a jump start on organizing the registration process for the golf tournament.  Kelsey and I flew in on June 8th, just in time to attend a dinner hosted by Dr. Jim Katsur and his sons, Josh and Justin.  We met some new friends and Lee shared a few thoughts – Read more »
