The Loras College and University of Dubuque softball teams would are hosting  "StrikeOut Cancer" softball doubleheader on Tuesday, April 24, 2012.  The Loras College Duhawks will compete against the University of Dubuque Spartans at Faber-Clark Field, located on the Loras College campus.  The games will begin at 3:00pm and 5:00pm. 


The National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) started the "StrikeOut Cancer" initiative over 10 years ago.  Since its inception, teams all across the nation have teamed up to raise tens of thousands of dollars to support the fight against cancer.  All proceeds from our "StrikeOut Cancer" event will go directly to the American Cancer Society to support cancer research. 


With a unified effort, Loras College and the University of Dubuque softball teams are raising money to "StrikeOut Cancer."  Here are some of the activities our April 24th event will include: 

  • Cancer Survivors throwing out the first pitch of each game
  • "StrikeOut Cancer" T-shirts will be sold
  • Raffle tickets will be sold for a chance to win Loras College and University of Dubuque prizes
  • An opportunity will be available to honor cancer survivors or victims
  • Throwing contest between games for the fans
  • "Pass the Hat" for every Loras College and University of Dubuque strikeout
