On Wednesday, July 12th, Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition held its annual breast cancer awareness game with the Wilmington Blue Rocks. There are so many great things to talk about from the game. To start, the Blue Rocks played the Lynchburg Hillcats at home and WON 5 to 4! The game went 13 innings!
Not only was the game a win for the Blue Rocks, but it was also a victory for our breast cancer survivors! Tickets were free for survivors and the Blue Rocks allowed them to come onto the field for a High Five Tunnel with the players before the game. A two-time survivor, Cindy, even brought her daughter Liorha to throw the first pitch!
It was a family friendly event that made everyone feel good! There were raffles and auctions for the uniforms the Blue Rocks were wearing. What made these jerseys special was that the players wore pink. People may have also seen the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition table selling merchandise throughout the night. And our friends at WJBR came out with special prizes and games for the occasion.
All around the game was amazing and a success for so many reasons:
- Our section was rocking pink to show support
- It was fun to watch the game and see the Blue Rocks win
- Survivors Recognition was in full force
- It was for kids and adults alike and everyone had a great time
Thank you so much for coming out to this wonderful event! We hope you will plan to join us again next year! Check our event schedule for more happening in your neighborhood!
