The Marion County High School baseball team donated $550 to the Good Samaritan Foundation recently, having raised the funds during its annual Breast Cancer Awareness Invitational on Mother’s Day weekend.
For head coach Patrick Campbell, the importance of the event extends well beyond merely making a donation.
“How do we teach the kids there’s more to it than just a ballgame? There’s more to it than throwing a baseball and catching a baseball,” he said. “People fight battles every day that we know nothing about.”
