Brandenburg & Friends
The Brandenburg siblings are passionate about finding cures for cancer. For nearly 20 years, they have been raising money for cancer-related charities. Cancer is not a foreign idea to the Brandenburg’s - they lost both of their parents to the disease. One evening, before their mother passed, the family was gathered in their living room watching ESPN and they saw the recording of Jim Valvano’s famous 1993 ESPY speech.
Never Give Up Softball Tournament
In 1995, Dominic Colavito was fighting for his life after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. Moved to hospice care, he said his final goodbyes to his friends and family. “A few things always stayed with me throughout, which were to have a positive attitude, accept support, trust in my doctors and the treatment and, most importantly, Never Give Up,” Dominic said about his battle against cancer.
