Moyers continue pitch for charity

There are few charitable organizations in the country that mean more to a certain area than what the Moyer Foundation means to the Northwest in particular, and also nationally.

Jamie Moyer, the former Mariners pitcher who ranks second in franchise history in wins and currently plays for the Phillies, continues to raise money and awareness through he and his wife Karen’s foundation.

An annual event that pumps funds into research, Karen Moyer will host a 12-hour marathon on Thursday (7 a.m.-7 p.m. PT) on WARM-FM (106.9) to raise money for “The Gregory Fund,” dedicated to early cancer detection research at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

It is part of the Moyer Foudation’s 7th annual Catch a Cure for Cancer national campaign.

This year’s campaign has special meaning to Karen as her father, Digger Phelps, was diagnosed and underwent successful treatment for prostate cancer.  Phelps is a college basketball analyst with ESPN.
