Photo: NKY Teams Unite to Strike Out Cancer
Students from Dixie Heights, Notre Dame Academy, and St Henry District High Schools battled it out at this year’s Strikeout Cancer softball tournament. SHDHS freshman Alex Shea, recently diagnosed with lymphoma, got a shoutout from the crowd when his sister, Brooke, threw out the first pitch in one of the games. All proceeds from the even went to the Dragonfly Foundation, which helps children and young adults enduring cancer and bone marrow transplants.
Strikeout Cancer is a project of the National Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association; for information about Strikeout Cancer games across the country or how to hold one, click here.
