The Windy City ThunderBolts professional baseball team is proud to welcome Medix as a new sponsor for the 2018 season. Medix will be the proud sponsor of Strike Out Cancer!, which will raise money for Wellness House, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide programs and resources for patients and families dealing with cancer.
“Medix is incredibly excited to partner with the Windy City Thunderbolts to Strike Out Cancer,” said Andrew Limouris, President and CEO of Medix. “We are fortunate to have a relationship with an organization like the Windy City Thunderbolts who were able to come up with such a great idea that aligns perfectly with Medix’s core purpose of positively impacting lives. Over the last year and a half, Medix has gotten know the values, the vision and the purpose of the Wellness House, and there’s no better organization for us to support to positively impact lives.”
As a major component of the sponsorship, Medix will donate $5 for each opposing batter a ThunderBolts’ pitcher strikes out during the 48 home game schedule in 2018. In addition to raising funds, Strike Out Cancer! is designed to increase awareness to Wellness House and the programs it provides to those affected by cancer.
To cap off the season long sponsorship, Medix and Wellness House will participate in a check presentation ceremony prior to the final ThunderBolts’ home game of the season vs. the Joliet Slammers on Saturday night, August 25. Representatives from each organization will throw out a ceremonial first pitch and there will be also be a pre-game “Walk Around the Bases” for all cancer survivors in attendance who wish to participate.
More information about pre-game events prior to the Saturday, August 25 ThunderBolts game will be released at a later date.

About Wellness House
28 years ago, a group of people came together because they saw, first-hand, the impact of cancer on their family and friends. Out of concern and determination, Wellness House was born to lighten cancer's burden through programs that prepare and empower people to fully live life with cancer and beyond. Wellness House uses a psychosocial approach based on research, addressing the whole person – socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and psychologically. Since opening their doors in 1980, 35,600 people have been impacted by Wellness House. Offered at no cost, and as a complement to medical treatment, our programs educate and support participants so they will improve their physical and emotional well-being.
