A season-long partnership between the Cincinnati Reds and Back2Back Ministries recently culminated on Faith Day at Great American Ballpark. The partnership kicked off during the International Series in April where the Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals competed in Monterrey, Mexico and hosted over 300 children on Back2Back’s Monterrey campus. One hundred lucky children from Monterrey were also able to participate in a day-long “Play Ball” clinic where they met and interacted with Reds and Cardinals players.
Together, the Cincinnati Reds and Back2Back Ministries raised money to help serve orphaned and vulnerable children around the world through a ticket package that included a special edition “Los Rojos” cap, co-branded with Back2Back’s logo. The final partnership game, held on September 2nd, allowed Co-Executive Directors, Todd and Beth Guckenberger, to share about the ministry on the field to over nineteen thousand fans. A special honor was also extended to Chris Cox, Back2Back Cincinnati Director, to throw the game’s first pitch, while Back2Back Director of Advancement, Rob Hall, handled the catching duties.
Thank you for being a part of this partnership season with us, for joining us at the ballpark and proudly wearing your Los Rojos caps, and for continually being an advocate for the orphaned and vulnerable child! We are so grateful to the Cincinnati Reds for their incredible partnership and advocacy this season.
