The Jason Motte Foundation 's Fourth Annual St. Louis Cornhole Challenge is set to take place on Monday, May 15 at The Biergarten at Anheuser-Busch. Doors will open at 5:00 PM, with Opening Ceremonies at 5:45 PM. 

 The Cornhole Challenge play will begin at 6:00 PM. Current Braves relief pitcher, Jason Motte and Cardinals second baseman, Kolten Wong, will once again host this fun-filled event. Joining them this year as teammates in the fight against cancer, will be Cardinals players, and former St. Louis Blues, Cam Janssen.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Jason Motte Foundation’s funding the remodeling of the treatment room located within the Oncology Inpatient Cancer Unit at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital and cancer initiatives through Cardinals Care. Fans will have the chance to see and interact with their favorite Cardinals and other local sports figures, and become teammates in the fight against cancer.

The event is a continuation of an idea Jason had when he was with the Cardinals in 2014 to take a fun, backyard game and match it up with the passionate St. Louis baseball fan base. Thanks to the  support of the St. Louis community the past three years, this event has raised over $330,000 for cancer research and projects in the St. Louis area. The event is presented by Fox Sports Midwest, Anheuser-Busch and R&W Builders,

STLSportsPage.com's official charity is Rainbows for Kids, a local charity dedicated to helping families of children with cancer in the St. Louis area.  When Motte played for the Cardinals he came out several times for their annual "All-Star Game" and played baseball with the kids.  

Kolten Wong has also pitched in with Rainbows for Kids, headlining a special charity party at Spring Training last year. The photo, left, shows Wong with some children who came to the charity event.
