One Team. One Fight. Together we will knock childhood cancer out of the park.
Robin Yount, Milwaukee Brewers Legend, and Jon McGlocklin, Milwaukee Bucks Legend, are taking to the diamond to coach a friendly game of softball for a special cause. The inaugural MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Celebrity Softball game will take place on Saturday, August 10 at Kapco Park on the campus of Concordia University. The fundraising event, which is sponsored by Kapco and the Lakeshore Chinooks, will feature professional sports stars, entertainers and local celebrities.
Event proceeds and donations will benefit the MACC Fund, which McGlocklin helped start and is dedicated to funding childhood cancer and related blood disorder research. The MACC Fund has contributed over $65 million dollars to childhood cancer and related blood disorders research which has had a significant impact. They have helped increase the five-year survival rate for all types of childhood cancer rates from 20% when the MACC Fund began to 80% today.
“The MACC Fund is thrilled to team up with Kapco and the Lakeshore Chinooks for this very special event,” McGlocklin said. “We are excited to welcome everyone to Kapco Park for a great ballgame featuring celebrities from across sports and entertainment. We look forward to a fun-filled day of activities as we continue to raise money for the fight against childhood cancer and related blood disorders."
A sincere thank you to all the generous donors across the country for donating to our fundraiser page.
