|Join us for high school and college baseball games that support prostate cancer activities. The first event was started in 2012 by Western Central High School (WCHS) thanks to the leadership of WCHS Head Trainer Kyle Sutton, the event has grown to include more schools and is now led by Kristen Sutton, Assistant Head Trainer, Dublin Jerome High School.
Proceeds from these events will be donated to the support of COMAPC to continue and increase its funding in Central Ohio for prostate cancer screenings for uninsured and underserved men and to expand its education and outreach programs.
