Strike Out Cancer in Kids

Strike Out Cancer in Kids is a fundraising program that supports Maine Children's Cancer Program (MCCP), provider of comprehensive care to children with cancer and blood disorders in Maine and beyond. Join the Portland Sea Dogs in going to bat for kids fighting cancer!

Two teams will compete to raise the most funds for MCCP by the end of the Portland Sea Dogs' regular season. Help your team win by encouraging others to donate and join your team! If each team raises $10,000, that amount will be MATCHED by the team sponsors, Capozza Tile and WEX!

This program is also driven by individual community members (like you!) who all have the same goal in mind: to defeat childhood cancer once and for all. Your participation in Strike Out Cancer in Kids will make a significant difference in the lives of children in Maine and New Hampshire who are fighting childhood cancer.

To participate, make a donation of any amount, and pick one of two teams to join:

  • Team Lauren (Lauren Loisel is the 2020 Slugger Kid and ambassador for MCCP), sponsored by Capozza Tile
  • Team Slugger (Portland's favorite mascot), sponsored by WEX
