Throwbacks' Vs. Cancer Tournament

The Gem City Throwbacks Baseball Organization has teamed up with Vs. Cancer Foundation to raise money for Dayton Children's Cancer Care Center and for national pediatric cancer research.

More than 160,000 kids are diagnosed with cancer every year.  Hundreds of children battling cancer are treated right here in the Miami Valley at Dayton Children's.  Money is needed to help these kids receive state-of-the-art care and funding is also needed for childhood cancer research.

The Throwbacks Tournament will be held on Saturday, May 17 and Sunday, May 18 for ages 8U, 9U and 10U.  A head shaving event, raising awareness and money for this disease, will be held at 3:00 pm on Saturday.

For information about the Tournament, please visit www.gemcitythrowbacks.com.  To learn more about our charitable partner, the Vs. Cancer Foundation, visit www.vs-cancer.org.  Half of the proceeds from this event will be returned to Dayton Children's Hospital for our local kids fighting cancer.
