D-backs present jersey to Hallsey family, donate to PCH

Staff Report~ 9/17/2014

PHOENIX – The Arizona Diamondbacks are helping fight back against childhood cancer.

September is childhood cancer awareness month. The D-backs dedicated last Saturday’s game to helping raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer programs at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. At the game, the D-backs presented a check for $100,000 to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. The team also presented a framed, signed jersey to the family of Tyler Hallsey, in his memory. The ‘Whatever It Takes’ family is continuing the fight against childhood cancer in honor of Tyler.

The D-backs also hosted several kids fighting cancer from the Phoenix Children’s Hospital’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders in the Raising Cane’s Kids Corral during batting practice. All proceeds from the D-backs 50/50 Raffle sales for the night will be designated to the pediatric cancer programs at PCH.

D-backs first baseman Paul Goldschmidt and his wife Amy frequently visit patients and families at Phoenix Children’s Hospital and created the Bleacher Creature program to benefit Goldy’s Fund 4 Kids, which raises funds for PCH. Fans that make a $44 tax-deductible donation to Goldy’s Fund 4 Kids, can choose between three plush dolls that feature Goldschmidt in the D-backs Home (White) Uniform, the D-backs Sedona Red uniform, or the D-backs Black Alternate Uniform (1998-2000). For more information and to make a donation, visit www.dbacks.com/goldyfund or visit the Chase Field Team Shop. Fans that make a $44 tax-deductible donation will also receive $10 off a D-backs adjustable cap at the Chase Field Team Shop.
