Eastern Shore asks your support to raise $5,000

PRINCESS ANNE, Maryland – The Maryland Eastern Shore baseball team has joined an initiative throughout college baseball to help raise money in the fight against pediatric cancer. In coalition with the Vs. Cancer Foundation, the Hawks are hoping to raise $5,000 in donations.

“This is a horrible disease that nobody should have to fight, especially kids.” Hawks Coach Charlie Goens said. “It is a great opportunity to partner with Vs Cancer to help raise money to find a cure. One of the biggest reasons to work with Vs Cancer is that half the money we raise will go to a local children’s hospital for them to use. Giving back to the community is important to us here at The Shore.”

Currently donations from Maryland Eastern Shore are around $250. To donate, please visit this link, ( which can also be found under “More Links” on You can also encourage others to join the fight by using the hashtag #CureKidsCancer.

We are accepting donations thru April 9th. During that day’s game against Coppin State, the total raised will be announced and the players will participate in an act of solidarity with those fighting pediatric cancer around the world.

“All of the players and coaching staff will be getting their heads shaved after the game.” said Goens. “It is a small thing we can do to show our support for all the children fighting this fight. We look forward to having some children at the game that day that are fighting this fight.  All donations are greatly appreciated, every dollar counts.  I want to thank everyone in advance for helping The Shore baseball team with this event and reaching our goal.”

Maryland Eastern Shore’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics encourages you to visit our page, make any donation large or small, and fight to stand against pediatric cancer and stand for those who fight the disease and search for a cure.
