Strike Out Cancer Off to a Hot Start

It was a sweltering night at Raley Field in Sacramento Saturday, June 29, but that didn’t stop NorthBay Healthcare employees from turning out in full force to support the NorthBay Cancer Center as the River Cats and Genentech kicked off “Strike Out Cancer.” This is the third year that Genentech has pledged to donate $100 every time a River Cats pitcher strikes out an opponent.


The donation will cap at $50,000, which is what NortBay Cancer Center was presented for last year’s event. Three patients from our Cancer Center were featured in a video that was aired on the stadium’s huge monitors during the evening and one of the patients, Pat McKnight, got to throw out the first pitch.
