NEWBERRY - The Newberry College softball and baseball teams will hold Friends of Jaclyn Day during their doubleheaders on Saturday, March 21. The teams are attempting to raise $1,000 to donate to the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation.

Friends of Jaclyn's mission is to improve the quality of life for children and their families who are battling pediatric brain tumors and to raise awareness about this insidious disease. FoJ pairs up children and their families battling pediatric brain tumors with college and high school sports teams. The teams give these children love, support and friendship as they fight this devastating disease. We celebrate each day by creating lasting relationships between student athletes, the child, and their families. This greatly improves the quality of life for children with brain tumors, as well as those who support them.

The Newberry College sfotball and baseball teams will be collecting donations on Saturday, March 21. The softball team hosts Anderson in a doubleheader that day, while baseball hosts a doubleheader vs. Tusculum.
