We are honored to have been a part of the TinCaps Season Opener on April 7 as one of the featured charities. Our volunteers had a great time interacting with fans and selling our “count moments” bracelets. Perhaps the highlight of the night was a chance for one of our clients, Nathan Coffey, to throw out one of the first pitches. Despite the gloomy weather, the night was a huge success, both for the TinCaps and Cancer Services.

These men guided people from the stadium entrance to the test site, and also provided wheel chair service to those who needed it. From left to right, the volunteers are Dan Rhodes and Jon Colbert.
