Ally Minker

Motivated by personal experiences with her grandfather, Ally decided to take action and help to the best of her abilities in the fight against cancer. This compelled her to establish a fundraising program within the baseball community, her grandfather’s favorite sport and the source of some of her fondest memories. Using NFCR’s Play4TheCure sports fundraising platform to help brand the events, Ally took the lead in establishing a charitable tradition with 10 minor league baseball teams by raising cancer awareness and hosting fundraisers at the various ballparks, generating $7,500 for cancer research.

In Ally’s words, “Being an NFCR Youth Ambassador will yield me the opportunity to become an international leader of community service, as well as allow me to increase awareness of current cancer prevention methods worldwide. I hope that through my involvement, I encourage my peers to become involved in their communities and learn more about cancer research and prevention.
