The Seattle Mariners will once again join Major League Baseball and all MLB Clubs in a league-wide effort to raise childhood cancer awareness by dedicating a special "Childhood Cancer Awareness Day" at Safeco Field on Friday, Sept. 1 as the Mariners take on the Oakland Athletics.

Mariners and A's players and coaches, as well as umpires and members of the Safeco Field grounds crew will wear gold ribbon decals and wristbands.

In partnership with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), MLB and teams support childhood cancer awareness month through a variety of activities. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children aged 15 and under in the United States. Every year, an estimated 300,000 new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide.

During the month of September, the Mariners will join with Seattle Children's Hospital to promote a "Strong Against Cancer" message at Safeco Field.

MLB and Clubs have supported the fight against cancer over the years. As Stand Up To Cancer's founding donor, Major League Baseball has provided both financial support (more than $40 million) and opportunities to raise awareness for Stand Up To Cancer's efforts by encouraging fans around the world to get involved. MLB has recognized SU2C at its jewel events since the 2009 World Series.
