Benefits Joslin Diabetes Center in commitment to find a cure
Batter up! The annual BOSTON FIELD OF DREAMS WiffleBall TOURNAMENT will be held on Saturday, May 19th at the Boston Athletic Club. The Boston Field of Dreams Foundation will be supporting Joslin Diabetes Center by hosting its day-long wiffle ball tournament, for all ages, to raise diabetes awareness.
The event is organized by Boston Police Superintendent Paul Fitzgerald and his wife Leigh Anne; their daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was eight years old. Since that time the Fitzgeralds have been committed to supporting research toward a cure for diabetes, and have raised over $80,000 in the last two years through this tournament. 100% of the proceeds from this years’ Field of Dreams will support Joslin’s commitment to finding a cure.
In addition to a morning wiffle ball tournament for children and families, Boston Bruin’s Legend Rene Rancourt will sing the National Anthem to kick off the afternoon games for adults. The day will also feature food, music, a raffle and many other fun activities. For the kiddos there will be a petting zoo, pony rides, face painting, and a K9 demonstration by the Boston Police Department.
