HAMMOND, Ind. – The Purdue Northwest softball team will be hosting its third annual game helping to raise awareness for the fight against Infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy (INAD).
The event began in partnership with “A Grace-Filled Journey”, a blog and foundation started by a family with a young daughter, Grace, who was diagnosed with the condition in 2015. Grace’s family hails from the same area as senior SS Tessa Steffens, and she has been instrumental in organizing the event.
Wristbands and sunglasses will be handed out to those attending the game, and Grace will be throwing out the first pitch before the games get underway tomorrow. The first game is set to start at 1 p.m. CT from Dowling Park.
