Brothers Graham R., fourth grade, and Ethan R., second grade recently partnered with Kids Boost—a local organization that supports kids using their talents, gifts, and passions to raise money and awareness for nonprofits that are important to them. Graham and Ethan combined their love of baseball and dogs and planned a Helping Others Homerun Derby in support of Releash Atlanta and Smyrna Little League. Graham and Ethan were featured on the nationally syndicated morning talk show, Q 99.7 The Bert Show (listen to the full interview) to promote their fundraising event.
The homerun derby was held October 5 at Brinkley Park in Smyrna and raised more than $3,343. Proceeds will support Releash Atlanta's mission of finding homes for all dogs, as well as provide for baseball scholarships for deserving Smyrna Little League players.
