Home Run for Chance

The Chelsea’s Light Foundation recently hosted the annual Home Run for Chelsea Tournament to support the Sunflower Scholarship Fund, help fund the Changemaker League leadership program, and promote legislation to keep communities safer. Almost 70 teams participated, with player ages ranging from eight to 14. “Fresh sunflowers dotted the sports fields and many teams showed their enthusiasm by wearing specially made t-shirts honoring Chelsea and all that the tournament represents,” said Jo Ann Bruning, Program Coordinator for the Foundation. She continued, “Every year attendees look forward to watching the Miracle League game, where special needs players, each partnered with a buddy, enjoy taking prat in the tournament. It’s a great experience to see how these players participated with heart and enthusiasm.” The boys, girls, and volunteers participating – including a number of moms volunteering to coach innings – all shared the same enthusiasm.
