Although our baseball team did not record a win in conference play on April 20, they did win with their cancer awareness efforts.

From the multi-colored balloons that represented many types of cancer, to our NNU men wearing pink, as well as the sea of pink t-shirts in the stands of those who also showed their support, it was a great celebration.

One person among many that was on the field was one of our own, Julie Wiebe.  Julie’s husband and mate of 42 years lost his battle with cancer on Easter Sunday.  Julie and Mike have a special place with the NNU family as alumni, employees and even our favorite Christmas caroler.

Surrounded by friends and family, Julie celebrated Mike’s courageous battle as she stood on the pitcher’s mound to throw out one of three celebratory pitches.

NNU may have not won the game, but they did win by celebrating loved ones who have been affected by cancer.
