There are some moments in your life when you can really make a difference in other people's lives and this is one of them.  Mill Creek Little League has decided to host an amazing event for one of our own.   

Dakota is a young man who until this year has played baseball in Mill Creek Little League.  Recently Dakota was diagnosed with Leukemia and is going through treatment, we are going to help him and his family.

"It is so kind of the League to hold the Hit-A-Thon in honor of Dakota.   I was speechless when I read your email.  We’ve been a part of this  community since T-Ball and have been blessed with meeting so many  wonderful families.  We’re very grateful."

Dakota's Mother

Note to Mill Creek Little League Families:  Your child will be getting a flyer with the details of the event at practice.

I first met Dakota 4 years ago on my baseball team. He might have been the smallest on the team but was always one of the biggest contributors in both skill, passion, and support to his teammates. Please help me now in supporting my friend.

Olliver Thayer#5

Hey everyone! Olliver just started T-Ball this year and so far is loving it! His League, MCLL, is having a dedicated fundraiser this year to help out a very special member of the league: "We have a player from our league, Dakota, who has been diagnosed with Leukemia. This year at our Little League Day on Saturday, April 28, we are having a Hit-A-Thon / HR Derby to raise money for his family." I know there are many deserving causes out there that all need support, but if you are able to give at all, any amount, it is all going to help Dakota and family work through this very difficult time and hopefully get back to just being a kid playing Little League with friends! We're extremely proud to be part of a League that's helping in such a wonderful way. Thank you for any support you can give!!

Quinn Russell-Peters#8
