Join the Boston Red Sox, ESPN On Air Personalities and former Major League Baseball Players in supporting the fifth annual Tim Sheehy Softball Classic!
We hope you'll join us in participating on one of our fundraising teams on Saturday, June 1st, 2019 on Roosevelt Island! Join a team or start your own to join in on all of the fun.
The goal of this tournament is to raise money in the fight against ALS as inspired by Tim Sheehy. Tim fought a courageous battle against ALS before his death in 2007; and like Steve Gleason, he saw the need to help those living with ALS by providing care. He created a 501(c)(3) - Project Main St. that raised more than $1 million dollars to this mission from 2006-2016. We are fortunate Project Main St. now continues this mission in a partnership with and for Team Gleason.
Team Gleason is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded by former NFL player, Steve Gleason. After being diagnosed with ALS in 2011, Steve founded Team Gleason, an organization focused on providing an immediate impact to people living with ALS through innovative technology, adventures, equipment, and care services. For more information visit - www.TeamGleason.org With the funds raised last year, Project Main St. & Team Gleason distributed 20 grants providing direct financial assistance covering the cost of home health care, medical and insurance expenses, and home upgrades for wheelchair accessibility. They also provided 32 communication device copays, 13 portable power wheelchairs and sent 7 families on adventures.
