Twin Cities Orthopedics' CEO, Troy Simonson, Set to Throw Out First Pitch
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
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
