The 2012 Hit A Thon is dedicated to assisting families with children coping with cancer,sickle cell anemia,and other serious illnesses. The Hole in the Wall Gang is a nonprofit,year-round center that offers FREE summer sessions and family weekend programs at the Camp in Ashford,Connecticut,and year-round outreach to hospitals and clinics throughout the Northeast. Camp served more than 17,500 children in 2011.

The Cub Scouts of Pack 48 are currently obtaining pledges to support their batting performance during the event. The Pack hopes to donate a minimum of $4,000 to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp – but in honor of their 5th Hit-A-Thon in Stamford,they will swing for the fences as they attempt to raise enough funds for $5,000 for the program. In January,each Scout will step into a batting cage at Bobby Valentine’s Sports Academy,and do their best to hit their personal and Pack fundraising goals.

There will also be an Open Swing Session open to the public where,for a $10.00 Donation,families can participate and compete for a prize. Please feel free to join in the fun! Details are posted to their website

The event has grown each year,as evidenced by the long term and growing support of its community sponsors and program partners,including Bobby Valentine’s Sports Academy,the Bridgeport Bluefish,Crumbs Bake Shop on High Ridge Road,First County Bank on Hope Street,Robeks on High Ridge Road,and The Tutoring Club of Stamford CT. In addition,this year’s newest sponsor is Hope Pizza!
