Schools will be able to support students and contribute to the educational process with the funds donated through the program.

"We're happy to have been able to donate $3,073 to local schools through the Capital BlueCross 'Live Fearless' Outstanding Student program, and we are hoping to donate even more money next season and beyond as the program grows," said Fightins General Manager Scott Hunsicker.

The Capital BlueCross "Live Fearless" Outstanding Student Program is a unique incentive-based program designed to recognize and reward hard-working students. Through the program, students are given an opportunity to celebrate their achievements with their families at a designated Fightin Phils home game. Each student who participated in the program during the 2016 season received two tickets to a game, a pre-game meet-and-greet with a Fightin Phils player, individual recognition during a pre-game ceremony, and an Outstanding Student medal from the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor.

For each ticket purchased or redeemed through the Capital BlueCross "Live Fearless" Outstanding Student Program, the participating school received $1 back.

The Capital BlueCross "Live Fearless" Outstanding Student Program is a five-year program that runs through the 2019 season.
