Join the Mud Hens and Fifth Third Bank as we take a stand against cancer during Stand Up To Cancer Night at Fifth Third Field on Sunday, August 27. The event aims to raise awareness, as well as funds. for Stand Up To Cancer's accelerated cancer research programs, while shining a spotlight on those fighting the disease.
"I Stand Up For" placards will be handed out before the game. Fans can personalize their placards as a way of supporting a family member or friend fighting cancer, honoring survivors, or remembering those they've lost. During a break in the game action, we'll share the placard messages on our giant video board.
For each strikeout a Mud Hens pitcher registers during the game, Fifth Third will donate $5,300 to Stand Up To Cancer, an initiative dedicated to raising funds to accelerate the pace of research to get new therapies to patients quickly to save lives now. Fifth Third will also donate $1 per game attendee.
