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.
With help from the local CCBUA Umpire Association and local select coaches a Youth Baseball Tournament was formed in 2011. The City of McKinney along with Mayor Brian Loughmiller, passed a proclamation that the First Weekend in May will forever be known as “Strikes Against Cancer Weekend”. Geordon’s foundation is also supported by grants by the McKinney Community Development Corporation.
