Knocking Out OCD

Leyden Softball Home Run Hitting Derby

Knocking Out OCD

For this year’s Leyden Softball philanthropy fundraiser, head varsity coach Kurt Schuett, along with the softball teams, are focusing on “Knocking Out OCD.”

On Saturday, April 26 from 6p.m. to 9p.m. Leyden Softball will be hosting a home run hitting derby at Bandits Stadium in Rosemont, in order to help raise money for the nonprofit organization known as Beyond OCD.

To participate in the home run hitting derby it is $10 per 5 swings, but you are not limited to one turn.

At the event there will also be concessions, bags, and music along with the derby.

According to the International OCD Foundation there is at least 1 out of 100 adults who have OCD and about 1 in every 200 children who are diagnosed. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations. This is a disorder that is hard to cope with and manage on a daily basis.

If swinging for the fence does not interest you but you still want to contribute to this cause you can purchase a t-shirt for $10.

These t-shirts are being sold by all Leyden softball players, and will be sold the night of the event. For more information on Knocking Out OCD you can see Mr. Schuett in room 207.
