Teaching Life Through Baseball at Battle Creek Middle School

Earlier this summer, the Blizzard Foundation set out to provide a positive outlet for kids of
Battle Creek Middle School during the summer months. This past Tuesday marked week three of this eight week baseball camp geared to teach kids life lessons through the game of baseball. We are proud to partner with  Mindstrong Project to make this possible. Harvey Martin and David Fischer have been a fantastic  addition to this camp.

"Surrounded by a group of individuals of all ages and
background s over the last few weeks while  building a foundation on strong values and purpose is special to The Mindstrong Project. We a re very grateful to be around these amazing ind ividuals." - Harvey Martin

The students at Battle Creek Middle School will be taking this Tuesday off as we head into the Fourth of July. Camp will resume on the 10th and run into August.  Thank you to all of our sponsors to make this possible!  Esch Construction Supply CooperSmith Marketing Hiway Credit Union Chartwell Financial , and  Twin Cities Orthopedics .

On August 12th, the Blizzard Foundation will bring together two baseball teams to play in an exhibition game solely for the friends and families of HopeKids and Crescent Cove. The event will take place at the University of Northwestern. We intend to provide these special families a day of baseball and family fun without the need to navigate massive stadium crowds. Just like the big leagues we will have tailgating before and during, a ceremonial first-pitch, national anthem, and a great time! The Blizzard Foundation is dedicated to making baseball accessible for families and accessibility sometimes means participating as a fan. In this way, we are honored to sponsor a game of baseball exclusively for the friends and families of HopeKids and Crescent Cove.

HopeKids provides ongoing events, activities and a powerful, unique support community for families who have a child with cancer or some other life-­threatening medical condition. We surround these remarkable children and their families with the message that hope can be a powerful medicine.

Around the United States, there are over 4,700 hospice homes for
adults,  but Crescent Cove is the third of its kind designed just for children and th eir unique needs, and the only home in the Midwest. Crescent Cove offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and to their families who love them.

Although closed to the public, we have an open opportunity for volunteers to serve or otherwise support the tail-gaiting/concessions. Contact Jeff Huth for additional information
