Craig Kimbrel, the closing pitcher for the Atlanta Braves,
brings his talent and energy to raising money for childhood
cancer research by serving as chairman of Players Curing Kids
Craig donates $100.00 per save and $25.00 per strikeout to
Curing Kids Cancer. In 2012, his 42 saves and 116
strikeouts raised more than $7,000 to childhood cancer
Craig is already one of the most respected closers in
professional baseball. He is currently in first place in the
National League for number of saves this season. He was
selected to the MLB All Star roster in both 2011 and 2012, and
was a unanimous selection as 2011 NL Rookie of the Year.
Kimbrel joined forces with Curing Kids Cancer after hearing how
Killian Owen - the inspiration for Curing Kids Cancer - lost
his life to leukemia at age nine.
"Hearing Killian’s story helped me realize that we are on the
threshold of discovering new cures for childhood cancers,” said
Kimbrel. “But the only way to get these new cures to young
patients is to raise money and awareness. It’s my goal to help
Curing Kids Cancer to do both.”
"We are thrilled to have Craig helping us raise both money and
awareness about childhood cancer research," said Grainne Owen,
founder and executive director of Curing Kids Cancer said.
"Craig is sincere in his desire to find cures for childhood
cancer in our lifetime."
