In an effort to help find a cure for cancer, the baseball teams of Raymore Peculiar High School and Lee’s Summit West have once again committed their conference baseball game to benefit The H8 Cancer Foundation. The game is on Monday, Apr. 22, 2019 at Raymore Peculiar High School.

For the past 8 years the Raymore Peculiar and Lee’s Summit West High School teams have dedicated their conference game to raise money for cancer research. This year they have chosen to donate 100% of all the proceeds from the game to the H8 Cancer Foundation.

All proceeds from game admission and concession sales will go to H8 Cancer Foundation (H8CF). There will be a silent auction and raffle at the conference game. We will also be having a guest speaker former Kansas City Royals pitcher and two time World Series winner, Danny Jackson, at the event.

RP Varsity vs. LSW Varsity will follow at 6:00 p.m.

The H8 Cancer Foundation (H8CF) goal is to end cancer. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death that takes far too many lives. H8CF is founded on the belief that, in the field of cancer research, there is a solid foundation but insufficient understanding of the basic science of cancer. With the technologies currently available, now is the time to take what we understand to bridge that gap. By translating this knowledge to the clinic, real advances in patient care, as well as cancer prevention, can be made. We are expecting phenomenal strides to be made in the next few years through collaborative scientists that conduct novel, groundbreaking cancer research.

H8CF was created by a group of friends in the Midwest whose lives have all been affected by cancer in profound ways. In the spring of 2014, they began working together to combine the resources of the environmental, transportation, racing, and entertainment industries in the fight against this hated disease. H8CF was formally launched on July 11th, 2014.
