The Notre Dame Softball Program ended their 12th annual Strike Out Cancer Weekend with wins both on and off the field, splitting the double header with Pittsburgh while raising over $70,000 that will go right back to the community.
The money goes toward helping families at Beacon Children's Hospital, as they put up their fights.
It's a cause that hits close to home for Head Coach Deanna Gumpf, whose daughter was diagnosed with cancer 12 years ago.
She says she wants to give back the same support her family was shown.
The weekend ended with a home run derby, where fans could donate $10 for ten pitches against the players.
Notre Dame Football Head Coach Marus Freeman got in on the fun, knocking 4 homers out of the park.
While the weekend may be over, the fight against childhood cancer continues.
