Spring is in the air!

Busy preparing for the tournamentIt’s March 7 and as I look out the kitchen window, I see snow on the ground with a thermometer of 39 degrees.  While we’re still in winter’s grasp, softball is on my mind and certainly the work of the Mark Fidrych Foundation. Phil Collins' lyrics say it all "...Not the snow, not the rain can change my mind.  The sun will come out, wait and see..."

We had a great 2014 and were able to distribute over $48,000 in grants something we are very proud of given the difficult economic climate we’re all in.

2015 promises to be even better.  And I need to get going on the plans for this year.

There are logistical details like arranging for the field, permits, etc. for our annual softball tournament.  The date is set for August 22, 2015.

There are also sponsors to contact and teams to recruit. 

We’re planning on another sports night at Chet’s Diner.  The silent auction was a huge success so expect that to be back again this year.

Since starting the foundation five years ago, I continue to be overwhelmed by the generosity and support of my friends, family, and community.  I am meeting many unsung heros who volunteer their time and energy without reservation.  Each of these heros touches my heart and I know Mark is touched as well.

Please check back to our website for updates throughout the year.
