Mercy Ministries Cheers for TN Diamonds Softball Team

Members from the Tennessee Diamonds softball team recently attended a Friends of Mercy luncheon at the Nashville home, and were so inspired by the work being done at Mercy Ministries!! These ladies immediately signed up for the Nashville Run For Mercy 5K and Family Walk to be held on Saturday, October 30th at Shelby Bottoms Greenway.

The residents of the Nashville home were invited to be the Diamonds’ special guests on Saturday, August 14th for “Pink Out the Park Night” in a game against the Akron Racers. The Diamonds held a silent auction of items worn and signed by the players and a percentage of the proceeds will go to Mercy Ministries.

The girls had a great time cheering on the Diamonds and resident Cara was invited to throw the first pitch! Check out the pictures and this video of the girls having a blast at the game:

We would like to thank the Diamonds for their support and look forward to seeing Team TN Diamonds at the Run For Mercy 5K in October! If you would like to join Team TN Diamonds, create a team of your own, or sign up as an individual runner, go to http://www.runformercy.org/.
