After losing her grandfather to cancer, Ally decided to create a Play4TheCure® team to honor his memory. Her grandfather taught her baseball, so Ally partnered with minor league baseball teams from around the country and established cancer awareness-themed games. The games educated others about cancer and the research conducted by NFCR-funded scientists.

Ally says: “I encourage my peers to become involved in their communities and learn more about cancer research and prevention.”

Latest: In just two seasons partnering with MiLB teams, over $7,500 was raised to support Research for a Cure. Ally, a senior in high school, will be attending the University of Notre Dame this fall.
