Raise The Rate, Horned Frogs Kickin’ Out Cancer was a huge success, bringing out TCU’s best and kickball players from all corners of the Fort Worth community. On Saturday, April 14, teams, fans and volunteers gathered at Benbrook Baseball Complex. Starting with a salute to our nation by the TCU men’s a capella group, the Horned Tones, and Super Frog.2, lead the annual march around the field. Teams kicked and danced their way through the day’s bracket with music provided by DJ Travis. Between games, all enjoyed food from TCU’s own Rollin n’ Bowlin and The Hamburger Man, as well as lawn games from Varsity Tavern. BlueZones was even there, educating our guests on simple lifestyle changes that can lead
to longer and healthier lives. In the end, Brannan’s Besties won first place, with last year’s champs, Team Dopamine coming in second. We also applaud Chemists Kickin’ for Caleb as the top fundraising team, honoring their friend and fellow Horned Frog, Caleb Ashbrook, who was recently diagnosed with cancer. We are fighting for Caleb and all those with cancer at such a pivotal time of life, supporting research for less toxic, more curative therapies and easing cancer’s impact through innovative patient programs and events.
Thank you to Benbrook Baseball Complex for providing our great venue, James Teague and his team of umpires, our photographers LindaWhitehead and Shawn McLaughlin, and the City of Benbrook. We are also deeply grateful to our volunteers from National Charity League, Trinity Valley School and UNT Health Science Center. Finally, a HUGE thank you to our 2018 Raise the Rate Chair, Nicole Burns, Dr. Chumchal and the TCU Pre-Health Students for hosting this year’s event! Thank you for an amazing event!
