    For Pete's Sake, Walk! benefits For Pete's Sake Cancer Respite Foundation, a non-profit organization that gives adult cancer patients, their caregivers and their kids a break from cancer.

    The event is hosted at Citizens Bank Park and is a family friendly walk! After a 3 mile route around the concourse, you'll take a trip around the bases and smile for a photo in the dugout. This is a great Team Building activity, and a fun day for family and friends. Plenty of delicious food and entertainment. To register, please visit www.takeabreakfromcancer.org
