Join us as two teams of local high school baseball players compete on the RoughRiders field in Frisco, TX for the Leukemia Texas “Strike Out Pediatric Leukemia” baseball game. The players compete to sell “Buddy Bears” to friends and family and then play in a charity baseball game to raise funds for all Leukemia Texas programs.
This year’s event on Sunday, May 21, is sponsored by our friends at Texas Oncology. Tickets are $25 each and include admission to the 4:00p.m Frisco RoughRiders game, followed by the charity baseball game at approximately 7:00p.m. Each ticket purchased will also sponsor a Buddy Bear stuffed toy for a leukemia patient in a local hospital.
Strike Out Pediatric Leukemia
16-year-old Hebron High School sophomore Jordan Seinera’s passion for baseball inspired him to create this special event. As the Event Chair for “Strike Out Pediatric Leukemia,” he’s bringing his love of the game and his connections together to raise money that will help fight pediatric leukemia.
This year Jordan’s fundraising goal is $80,000. That amount would provide 80 children and their families with a Patient Aid Grant to help them offset their living, travel, and medical expenses.
“I’ve played baseball with most of these guys at some point during my life,” said Jordan. “We’re excited to raise money for such a worthy cause by playing the game we love so much at an incredible stadium. My family has been involved with Leukemia Texas for a long time, so this is a great fit to continue to help others.”
7-year-old Lincoln Finley of Aledo, TX, nicknamed Lincoln the Brave, is the Honorary Chair for the “Strike Out Pediatric Leukemia” charity baseball game. Among his many hobbies and interests, he’s a HUGE Houston Astros and Aledo Bearcat fan!
Lincoln the Brave was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in July 2022 and is a patient at Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, TX. He’s currently in a tough phase of treatment but is doing well.
Lincoln and his family have certainly felt the impact of childhood cancer, and Leukemia Texas was honored to support them with a Patient Aid check and a Travel Buddy suitcase. His mom Ashley says, “Being supported by Leukemia Texas and the ‘Strike Out Pediatric Cancer’ event is a visible and heart filling reminder that we aren’t fighting alone. Even in the hardest of times there is goodness to be found.”
