In an effort to give back to the community, Strike Out Cancer Day was founded by Sarah-Beth Janssen in 2005. Thanks to the Timber Rattlers, many additional sponsors and our team of volunteers, we provide local families battling pediatric cancer a day to forget about fighting their disease, relax as a family and find support from other families in attendance. As the event has grown so have our fundraising efforts. Because of this we've established the fund to assist local families in need.
Purpose of the fund: To provide financial assistance to qualified Northeastern Wisconsin families battling pediatric cancer. Funds are available to help with medical expenses, travel expenses, or everyday living expenses.
Conditions of the Fund: Families applying must have a current pediatric cancer patient and will be limited to 1 claim per child for life. Bills will be paid by Community Benefit Tree for all approved applicants. Applicants must disclose other monetary assistance at the time of the application.
