Together we're taking a stand in the fight against childhood cancers!

Thank You For Joining Us For the Big Game in 2019

We were proud to partner with Tustin Western Little League (TWLL) on our 3rd Annual Coaches Fighting Cancer event on April 28, 2019, at the TWLL Fields in North Tustin.

In 2017, TWLL coaches and families raised more than $27,000 for the cause!  In 2018 we raised more than $30,000 and honored our hero, Carter Ankeny, at our big game. And in 2019, we spent another super fun afternoon helping families thrive in the face of cancer, honoring cancer-fighting superhero Mayz Gonzalez and raising nearly $35,000 in the process!

Thank you to our 2019 Event Partners

Join these community leaders and partner with us for the 2020 event!



Coaches Fighting Cancer is an innovative co-fundraiser that partners your nonprofit youth sports league with MaxLove Project, a nonprofit dedicated to helping children and their families thrive while fighting pediatric cancers and beyond.

Who can do it?

Any youth sports league or chapter can do it. All you need is a dedicated crew to communicate the mission, schedule the event and activities, and recruit coaches to fundraise and play in a game against each other. Board members, team parents, and other leaders are all great candidates.

Why should my league do it?

Coaches Fighting Cancer not only raises funds, but it also builds community. When we’re all working together for something greater than ourselves by raising funds for kids fighting cancer, it brings us together.  We create a culture of philanthropy for our children. We see another side to the people we compete against, and our leagues are stronger for it. Plus, whether you’re on the field or in the bleachers, it’s really fun!

How does it work?

A Coaches Fighting Cancer event involves two teams of coaches playing against each other in a game. To qualify to play in the game, a coach must reach a MaxLove Project fundraising minimum, with the fundraising occurring online in a peer-to-peer setting in the weeks leading up to the event date. Team members, friends, and families can all donate to help a coach reach their goal. The league sets the game rules. Any additional activities that happen on game day are all fundraisers for your league: You can sell official Coaches Fighting Cancer apparel and merch, sell tickets, bring in food trucks or kids’ activities, or whatever you can dream up. Grandparents, friends, and families will all come out to enjoy the day.

How will MaxLove Project work with my league?

We’ll help with the website setup for fundraising, hook you up with our merch vendor, provide a toolkit for success based on events, and consult as needed for prizes, logistics, promotions, and advertising. Your league will provide the venue, the date, and an enthusiastic team of volunteers willing to spread the word, recruit coaches, and handle the event planning and execution.
