Why we play ball and "move":
On a very warm and heartfelt note, we are honoring our departed teammate Forrest Leland Garrett by establishing a lasting legacy in his name. Forrest embodied all that the word teammate symbolizes: dedication, integrity, humor, and love. This was his team, his baseball family. These funds will help establish an annual memorial scholarship in recognition of an outstanding young man. In addition, it is our goal to raise enough money to repair our dilapidated batting cage. (It's present condition poses a possible safety issue for players and passersby and its lack of a roof renders it useless in rainy weather). A new or redesigned batting cage will be dedicated as an enduring tribute to Forrest. May his love of baseball and his joyfui infectious laughter live on for generations of ballplayers to come...
Our MOVathon begins on May 1st. May is National Physical Fitness & Sports Month and represents a great opportunity to spread the word about the benefits of increasing activity and movement for all members of the family. Using a fitness-tracking device called a MOVband we are committed to moving 100 miles per participant during the month of May! We are looking for MOVERS, SHAKERS, and FUNDRAISERS to join our team for this event, and continue moving well into June and the summer months! Come one come all! Join our MOVathon and fundraise for Forrest or just fundraise; becoming a Fundraiser is free to all.
For more information on obtaining a MOVband please contact Karen P. Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org - buying your band ($30) through El Camino Boosters gurantees 20% of your purchase goes back to the team.
Thank you for your support. Let's play ball!!!
