Strike Out Cancer

5th Annual Strike Out Cancer Day at AT&T Park

Sunday, May 11, 2008 (Mother’s Day)
San Francisco Giants vs. Philadelphia Phillies
1:05 p.m.

In partnership with the San Francisco Giants and The Wellness Community, Genentech has teamed up for a fifth consecutive year in 2008 to help "Strike Out Cancer" in the Bay Area. The Strike Out Cancer program empowers people with cancer and their loved ones to take a team approach when facing cancer, and encourages them to learn about support networks and educational resources. For someone living with cancer, the support of fellow patients, professional counselors and loved ones can often be just as important as receiving the latest treatment regimen and medical care from their doctors and nurses. Through the Strike Out Cancer Program, Genentech makes a $200 donation to The Wellness Community for every strikeout thrown by a Giants pitcher in a regular season home game.

Sunday, May 11 (Mother’s Day) is Strike Out Cancer Day at AT&T Park. The first 20,000 fans will receive a commemorative pink SF Giants/Genentech baseball hat. Come out to the ballpark and show your support of the Strike Out Cancer program and the Giants as they take on the Phillies.

Hey Trish, is the good news, you've got your youth, your health, a positive attitude, and an army of family & friends on your side. Not to mention a fierce competitive spirit from what I have heard :) Stay strong, battle it out, and come out the winner. We are all rooting for you.
