Lester, a cancer survivor, goes to bat for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
Chicago Cubs pitcher, Jon Lester, has built quite the résumé through his first decade-plus in the majors, helping to win two World Series with the Boston Red Sox and adding another last year with the Cubs. Jon has also made four All-Star appearances, won an NLCS MVP award and a Babe Ruth Award, and has even pitched a no-hitter.
The weekend of September 16th was a victorious and charitable one for the Fox Triathlon Team, who raised $96,000 for pediatric cancer research at Children's Hospital Los Angeles - all while earning the impressive title of overall fastest team for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon.
Jose Fernandez is making a pitch this weekend in the fight against pediatric cancer.
The Marlins’ starter was scheduled to attend the third annual Bella’s Ball in Miami on Saturday, a fundraising event for the Live Like Bella Childhood Cancer Foundation he has supported throughout his professional career.
For the fifth year in a row, more than 100 Fox employees competed in the Nautica Malibu Triathlon presented by Equinox, an annual event that raises money for the pediatric cancer research center Children's Hospital Los Angeles. This was the first year that the Fox team won the Entertainment Industry Challenge, beating out triathlon teams from other media companies and raising nearly $124,000 for Children's Hospital LA.
