Every October, Ohio State softball closes its fall season with the Collegiate Charity Classic, a Saturday full of games against surrounding teams and dedicated to raising money for the fight against breast cancer.
Every year since her daughter Cammi started playing for the program, Donna Prantl has seen this Saturday in full swing.
This year is the first she’s seen it as a breast cancer survivor. Now in remission, she enjoys the event in the loving company of her Buckeye softball family, where she’s always been.
This year, Ohio State softball celebrated its 19th Annual Ohio Collegiate Charity Classic.
Over 19 years, Charity Classic participants have helped raise more than $250,000 for breast cancer research, making it one of the state’s most successful fundraisers for breast cancer awareness.
