Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease in children. Brain tumors are the deadliest and most common childhood cancer in children under fifteen. By competing together, with one voice, you can change the game for kids with cancer.
In 2021, our inaugural Vs. Cancer National Event exceeded our expectations with over 40 teams hosting Vs. Cancer games between April 16-25 and fundraising nearly $200,000. In 2022, we look forward to increasing those numbers with a goal of one hundred teams competing on behalf of the kids we serve.
The 2022 Vs. Cancer National Event will occur between April 22 and May 1 and will serve as a kickoff to Brain Tumor Awareness Month. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s (PBTF) Vs. Cancer program is pleased to welcome Perfect Swings as our 2022 National Event presenting partner!
Perfect Swings, founded by John Morabito and his two sons, Nick, and Dominic, launched in 2020. The company specializes in hitting tools for organized baseball and softball teams to help players improve their swing. The Morabito family’s support of the PBTF’s Vs. Cancer program began during Nick and Dominic’s time playing baseball at Lincoln Memorial University (LMU). The LMU baseball program is led by Baseball Vs. Cancer Ambassador, Justin Haywood, and is consistently one of the nation’s top fundraising baseball programs.
As the world’s leading nonprofit committed to children and teens with brain tumors, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s mission is simple, yet powerful: Care. Cure. Thrive. Your support makes this possible, providing care for families, fueling research to cure childhood brain tumors, and helping families thrive after diagnosis.
As a signature fundraising campaign of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, Vs. Cancer fundraising proceeds help fuel child-life programs at near-by hospitals and fund national pediatric brain tumor research. We encourage all organized sport teams at all levels to participate in our 2022 National Event so that children can enjoy a brighter future. Interested in getting involve?
