The Fort Myers Miracle have joined other Minor League Baseball teams across America to raise money for Vs. Cancer, the signature fundraising campaign of the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.

The Miracle will host Vs. Cancer Night today, Aug. 9, at Hammond Stadium to generate support for pediatric brain tumor research as well as family support and child life programs. Fans can donate at the ballpark and purchase raffle tickets for baseballs autographed by former, current and future MLB ballplayers. Sport Clips also will be on hand offering haircuts in exchange for donations.

Minor league teams have turned the Vs. Cancer fundraiser into a competition, allowing donors to offer online contributions on behalf of their favorite Single-A, Double-A or Triple-A baseball team. Several Miracle players also have created their own accounts and are soliciting donations from fans.

"The Miracle gladly partner with a variety of charitable organizations in their fundraising initiatives, and the Vs. Cancer movement is critically important to help children who are battling brain cancer," said Chris Peters, president and general manager of the Fort Myers Miracle. "Although we're hoping to generate the most donations among all minor league teams, the key is raising as much money collectively as we can to help the Foundation."
