TinCaps and Fort4Fitness Pledge Support To Boston Victims

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- This weekend during the three-game series vs. the Lansing Lugnuts, the TinCaps organization will make a donation to the American Red Cross for every person that walks through the gate wearing any attire from a charitable or competitive running race (shirt, sweatshirt, hat, bib, etc).

There will also be a Fort4Fitness booth behind home plate where fans can sign a banner that will be sent to Boston and make individual donations to the American Red Cross.

“Although we in Fort Wayne are hundreds of miles from Boston, we feel compelled to do whatever we can to help those who are in need,” TinCaps President Mike Nutter said. “And as hosts of the annual Fort4Fitness races, we feel especially tied to the running community. While the dollars that will be raised over the weekend are important, perhaps just as helpful is to give folks in the Fort Wayne area a chance to show their solidarity with those suffering in Boston.”

The three-game series is set for Friday at 7:05 p.m., Saturday at 5:05 p.m. and Sunday at 3:05 p.m. (April 19-21)
