Please join us on Saturday, October 26th, 2019 at 2PM for the 2nd Annual Mom Ball: Battle for the Battle!

In 2018, 120 moms took the field under the lights at Pingree School in Hamilton, MA. They wore eye black and knee braces. They wore mouth guards and smiles. They were there, along with family and friends, to play flag football. Eleven teams made up of local moms battled it out that cool October evening to stand up to a disease that affects far too many of us. They laughed and cheered and battled, all in the name of breast cancer.

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer ~ that means, on average, every 2 minutes, another woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. The ESSCO-MGH Breast Cancer Research Fund helps support breast cancer research and innovations. Last year, these flag football-playing women and their friends and families helped to raise $20,000 to further this research.

We are so thankful for your generosity and support of this incredibly important (and really fun!) event!
