The Chipola Lady Indians will host the first Annual “Strikeout” Cancer game on Thursday, April 9, at the Chipola Softball Field. The Lady Indians will take on Pensacola in a double header that will be played at 4 and 6 p.m.
The Lady Indians will be attired in pink to pay tribute to those affected by breast cancer. Commemorative shirts and bracelets will be on sale with proceeds donated to the American Cancer Society. The first pitch of the game will be thrown out by a breast cancer survivor.
Chipola coach Belinda Hendrix says, “The Lady Indians hope to bring a greater sense of awareness to breast cancer and to celebrate the brave individuals who have battled and continue to battle this dreadful disease. We are asking for the support of the community, the families of breast cancer victims, as well as breast cancer survivors to participate in our endeavor to ‘Strikeout’ Cancer.”
