2013 Season

Games Saved: 50

Strikeouts: 98

Total Donation So Far: $7,450

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 Cancer.

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 research.

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."
