FieldEddy joins Rally Against Cancer
EAST LONGMEADOW An East Longmeadow local business is joining Rally Against Cancer to support the Jimmy Fund and the Boston Red Sox. Team FieldEddy Insurance led by Teresa Petit de Mange is "rallying" to win a visit from either Tim Wakefield or Clay Buchholz, Red Sox pitchers and Jimmy Fund co-captains.
When the Red Sox suit up against the New York Yankees for opening day at Fenway Park April 8, Red Sox Nation is encouraged to Rally Against Cancer to benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund. By contributing $5 or more to the Jimmy Fund, participants have the opportunity to "Dress for Sox-cess" by wearing Boston Red Sox gear to work or school on April 8.
The top fund-raising company and school (kindergarten to grade 12, college, or university) are each eligible for a visit from Wakefield or Buchholz, if located within two-hour travel distance from Boston.
This year's event adds a unique twist up for grabs are two "Wild Card" visits. Each team that raises $5,000 or more is eligible to win a visit from Wakefield or Buchholz (see full contest rules at rallyagainstcancer.org).
"As a long-time supporter of the Jimmy Fund, I see how life-changing cancer is," said first-time Rally spokesplayer Wakefield. "Rally Against Cancer is an easy and fun way for all of us to help the Jimmy Fund give hope to the adults and kids who are fighting this disease."
Buchholz said, "I am honored to return as a Rally Against Cancer spokesplayer. I have seen first-hand in the Dana-Farber clinics the amazing patients bravely fighting their cancer, and I encourage Red Sox Nation to support the Jimmy Fund."
