Annual loose change drive raises $4,000 to help end childhood brain cancer

Marietta, Georgia (Cobb County) -

The 6-4-3 Foundation, the charitable arm of the 6-4-3 organization, is pleased to share the results of its 2019 loose change collection campaign.  Due to many generous families inside the 6-4-3 DP Baseball academy, over $2,200 worth of pennies (6,377 to be exact), dimes, nickels and quarters were recently collected.  The coins collected have been donated to the Rally Foundation along with an additional financial contribution from The 6-4-3 Foundation for a grand total of $4,000.  Specifically, the 2019 funds will be deposited into the research fund for brain cancers in memory of Rally Kid Carson Rozsman. 

Launched in 2017, the Team Carson Cancer Research Fund honors the life of 6-4-3's own Carson Rozsman.  Carson died on March 1, 2017, after a brave battle with inoperable brain cancer.  Although Carson is no longer with us, the 6-4-3 organization will not soon forget his passion for the game of baseball and the courage he displayed during his cancer fight.  In addition to the Rally research fund created by The 6-4-3 Foundation in Carson's memory, 6-4-3 DP Baseball created the Carson Rozsman Courage Award to both honor and remember Carson. The Carson Rozsman Courage Award is a special honor given at the annual 6-4-3 Awards Banquet to an individual that demonstrates great strength in the face of adversity.  This award is granted based on merit and not necessarily every year.

Childhood cancer is the number one disease killer of kids in the United States.  Every school day, 46 kids are diagnosed with cancer.  Kids get different kinds of cancers so different research is needed.  Rally funds the best, life-saving research all over the world.  92 cents of every dollar given supports that research. Rally’s mission is to empower volunteers across the country to raise awareness and funding for childhood cancer research so we can find better treatment options with fewer long-term side effects, and ultimately, a cure. 

The 6-4-3 Foundation is a proud and supportive partner of Rally Foundation.  To learn more about The 6-4-3 Foundation, please click here.
