Twins partner with Prostate Cancer Foundation for Home Run Challenge

The Twins will donate $10,000 for each homerun hit by a Twins hitter and $1,000 for each strikeout recorded by a Twins pitcher from June 12-17

The Minnesota Twins today announced plans to take part in the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) Home Run Challenge from Tuesday, June 12 through Father's Day on Sunday, June 17. The Twins organization has pledged $10,000 to the PCF Home Run Challenge for every homer hit by a Twins player, as well as $1,000 for every strikeout recorded by a Twins pitcher, up to $100,000.
 
"The Pohlad family and entire Minnesota Twins organization salutes the work of Michael Milken and the PCF," said Twins President & CEO Dave St. Peter. "The PCF leadership and vision has inspired our team to play a small role in helping raise incremental dollars in this ongoing fight to cure this deadly disease. We encourage others in and out of baseball to accept the PCF Home Run Challenge and make a contribution today."
 
The Minnesota Twins and the state of Minnesota have been supporters of the PCF Home Run Challenge for the last 20 years. Through the generous help of the Twins and their fans, the PCF has funded over $1.5 million worth of research in Minnesota for ground-breaking prostate cancer research with the potential to save many lives. Twins have contributed $591,000 to the PCF since 2013.
 
The PCF Home Run Challenge is a partnership with Major League Baseball that helps baseball fans join the fight against prostate cancer by raising money for research through monetary pledges based upon each home run hit. Since its creation in 1997, the PCF Home Run Challenge has raised over $45 million for prostate cancer research. Fans can join the campaign by making a pledge at www.homerunchallenge.org.
