Stupid Strong is a grant-based organization dedicated to raising awareness about gastric cancer.
Until I got a phone call recently asking me to sponsor a fundraiser, I did not know that Periwinkle blue was the color for stomach cancer. I was saddened to learn that often this cancer has no symptoms until it has progressed to late stages. Research is badly needed, and funding is tight.
The Adam Cantu Memorial Charity Softball Tournament will be played at Camp Sienna on Sunday,Nov. 14. Adam passed away last August from stomach cancer and his wife, a Sienna resident, is hosting this tournament along with Stupid Strong. This tournament will be a co-ed, slow-pitch tournament with up to 30 teams. In addition to the games, there will be music, food trucks, face painting, a balloon artist and raffle prizes. I am proud to be a sponsor of this event.
Even if you do not play softball, I hope you will come out to the Sienna fields on Nov. 14 and support this cause. You can learn more at https://www.stupidstrong.org/events/2021-charity-softball-tournament/.
