Strikes Against Cancer
Strikes Against Cancer was the idea of 11 year old Geordon Cox during his mother’s four year battle with endometrial and cervical cancer. He decided to join his mother in her fight by channeling his frustration, love, and energy in to something positive and Strikes Against Cancer was born. Geordon lost his mother, Lisa, in November 2012.
Over seven years later, this tournament has evolved into more than baseball, it has become a life event. Teams and families travel into North Texas a week before the event to utilize the cancer facilities. Strikes Against Cancer donates all the proceeds from the tournament to fight ALL forms of cancer. These proceeds go specifically to clinical research! The 2017 proceeds went to: The American Brain Tumor Association, Melanoma Research Foundation, National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, and Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
