Players, parents and patrons of Fastpitch for a Purpose came together in a huge way this past October, knocking it out of the park for the 4th consecutive year. Led by coordinator and creator, Stephanie Lux, this event raised $12,500 for the PBCC’s programs and services to help breast cancer survivors!

Every year, Stephanie rallies the youth in Shrewsbury, York County, to team up in the battle against breast cancer. Girls ages 8-18 play in this 2-day softball tournament, many of them in honor of a loved one who has been touched by breast cancer. The girls leave feeling inspired and passionate about the cause, knowing that they made a difference by doing something as simple as playing a game that they love.

Since 2012, this incredible community-wide fundraiser has contributed over $40,000 to the PBCC and helped spread awareness regarding our free resources. If you would like to get involved with this event, please visit their Facebook page here, and save the date for this year’s tournament: October 1-2, 2016!
