The GHS and Wawasee softball teams helped raise more than $3,100 for Cancer Resources for Elkhart County on Friday, April 27th.
Everence® was a sponsor for the Strike Out Cancer night at Shanklin Park. Together, the Goshen and Wawasee teams and fans raised $3,174.00 to benefit Cancer Resources for Elkhart County. They sold T-shirts and pink sugar cookies the night of the game, and passed a helmet to collect for this worthy cause.
Each team had a cancer survivor throw out the first pitch. GHS Assistant Coach Jeryl Miller’s wife Kim was honored to throw out a first pitch, although she said “I didn’t do it very well”. There also a balloon launch before the game, and each team wore pink uniforms, pink ribbons and pink “eye black.” Goshen won the JV game, with Wawasee winning the varsity game in extra innings. It was a fun evening for all!

Thank you, Everence, for helping sponsor this event, and thank you to all in attendance for making the evening a success!
