SASS Hits A Home Run

The SASS Foundation for Medical Research, Inc., with the help of local high school baseball teams, sponsored a special campaign for Mother’s Day: “Hit a Home Run for Mom…Beat Breast Cancer!”

The campaign, designed by SASS Foundation President Dr. Francis Arena, was aimed at bringing home the vital message about breast cancer and the importance of screening and early detection.

Believing that there are no better ambassadors than our young people, the foundation was joined by members of local high school baseball teams who played with pink-stitched baseballs and wore pink wristbands in honor of their moms. They also brought home important printed medical information to their moms who, in turn, were able to share it with others, as a special Mother’s Day gift for all women.

The participating high school baseball teams were from:

• Herricks High School
• Long Beach High School
• Mineola High School
• Locust Valley High School
• Roslyn High School
• New Hyde Park High School
• Chaminade High School
• Wheatley High School (East Williston)
• Saint Mary’s High School
