BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The second annual Softball 4 Hope game took place at NYSEG stadium Saturday morning to raise money for cancer patients and raise awareness for the disease.
Players in the game all wore jerseys with names on the back representing loved ones with cancer.
Spectators had the chance to enter a raffle to win four tickets to an upcoming Red Sox game.
For the players, it was a chance to honor their loved ones.
“When we first started it was about raising the money,” explained Brian Laing, founder of the Constance Foundation. “But then it became about remembering our loved ones, and our families, and our friends who have either passed on, or are dealing with cancer right now.”
All proceeds from the event benefit the Constance Foundation, which works to financially assist people living with cancer.
