GHEC/T/ML Jaguars and Madelia Blackhawks softball teams will be competing to "Strike Out Cancer" during their games at Rosburg Diamond in Truman on April 29th, 2019.  100% of the money raised will be donated to both Martin and Watonwan County Relay for Life events. Last year our event was recognized by the National Coaches Fastpitch Association for raising the most money of any high school nationally!  We invite you to take part in this event and would like to request your help raising money for this cause.

How can you help?  Cancer has affected everyone in some way.  Coming together can make a big difference.  If you are interested in helping us “Hit Cancer Out of the Park” please choose an option and return this form to the address below.

STRIKE OUT PLEDGE

Sponsor strike-outs by pledging a monetary amount each time a batter is struck out on either team (b-squad and varsity).  Every time a pitcher strikes out a batter the amount of money raised for Relay for Life will increase.  No amount is too small!

LUMP SUM DONATION

Lump sum donations are welcome in any amount and will go directly towards our fundraising goal.

SILENT AUCTION

There will be a silent auction with many different items.  Any item or certificate donations are greatly appreciated as well.
