GRAND CHUTE - Despite the heat Sunday, it was a beautiful day at the Timber Rattlers ballpark, where players were positioned to "Strike Out Cancer."
The eighth annual event at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute offered free admission to children battling cancer and their families.
Kids could also take part in some special activities ahead of the game - including a tailgate party and playing catch on the field.
The event's founder says she wanted to offer families coping with cancer a stress-free day of fun.
"Finances are strapped, I mean it's no secret that battling cancer of any type is extremely expensive for people. So, this is a way we can provide them a free day, a tailgate party, ballgame - just to come out and relax," said Sarah-Beth Janssen with Strike Out Cancer.
Locks of Love was also on hand at the game taking donations.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will go toward assisting local families affected by childhood cancer.
