Cardinals Care was established to give fans a way of teaming up with Cardinals players and the organization to help children in our community – both on and off the baseball field. Since it was established in 1997, Cardinals Care has distributed nearly $21 million to support St. Louis area non-profit youth organizations and built 21 youth ball fields in local under-resourced neighborhoods. 2016 marks the 13th year of Cardinals Care’s innovative Redbird Rookies program, a free baseball league for kids who otherwise might not have the opportunity to play. In addition to providing all the uniforms, gloves, bats, balls and other equipment needed for each team, Redbird Rookies also provides extensive off-field support in the areas of health, education, mentoring and the cultural arts for each of the nearly 4,500 kids who participate in the program each year.

NEW VENUE HIGHLIGHTS THIRD ANNUAL EVENT

Jason Motte Foundation to host Annual  Cornhole Challenge at Ballpark Village May 16, 2016
World Series Closer Bringing Together Fans and Teammates in Fight Against Cancer

Beanbags will be flying through the air once again at the Third Annual Jason Motte Cornhole Challenge, presented by Fox Sports Midwest and R&W Builders. On Monday, May 16, Jason Motte and Kolten Wong, along with the help of their Rockies and Cardinals teammates, will host an evening of fun, friends, competition, and memories that will last a lifetime. Doors will open at 4:45 p.m. with Opening Ceremonial First Toss at
5:45. 

This year’s event will be held at Fox Sports Midwest Live within Ballpark Village, just steps away from Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis.

The Jason Motte Cornhole Challenge is a continuation of an idea Jason had, while a member of the Cardinals organization, to take a fun, backyard game and match it up with the passionate St. Louis baseball fanbase. Fans will have the unique opportunity to see and interact with their favorite Cardinals and Rockies players, and become teammates in the fight against cancer, all while raising money for a cause that shows no discrimination and affects millions of people each year. 

In the past two years, this event has raised over $225,000 for cancer research and those affected by cancer. These funds, and the increased awareness, are vital in the quest to Strike Out Cancer.

Teams for the Cornhole Challenge are sold out, but fans can still purchase Spectator tickets for $40. That price includes admission, food and beverage. Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Foundation website at www.jasonmottefoundation.org/cornhole.

Proceeds from the event will benefit cancer projects through the Jason Motte Foundation and Cardinals Care.

A wide variety of sponsorship packages are also available for individuals and businesses who would like to join in the fight. For more information, contact Karen Cole with the Jason Motte Foundation at 314.780.6397, or email at karen@jasonmottefoundation.org.

Another feature while the Rockies are in town, will be Strike Out Cancer Night at Busch Stadium. On Wednesday, May 18 fans can purchase Loge Reserved seats for $15 and $5 from each ticket purchased will benefit the Jason Motte Foundation. Tickets for the game can be purchased by going to www.cardinals.com/kcancer.

Jason and his wife, Caitlin, found the passion back in 2010 as they watched Caitlin’s grandfather, Lynn Doyle, battle lung cancer. At that time, they asked, “How can we help?” and from there the Jason Motte Foundation was born. Even after signing with the Colorado Rockies, the Motte’s continue to make their presence known in the St. Louis community, making hospital visits and spending countless hours visiting cancer patients and families.
