Andrew's Bravery Box is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that provides toys and rewards for some of the bravest people in the world.  Each and every day, patients at Twin Cities area Children's Hospitals show courage as they push through tough situations in their battle against illnesses, congenital heart defects, cancer, and many other conditions that require hospitalization.  By providing small rewards in the form of toys, activities, and other fun items for families and nurses to give to patients, Andrew's Bravery Box seeks to make the hardest parts about a hospital stay a little easier to endure.  Whether a patient has a fear of IV's, an aversion to taking medications, or just needs some encouragement, we want to reward their courage and provide the tools for families and staff to be able to do so in every situation.

Andrew Dorsing was the first patient to benefit from what used to be called the Bravery Bag.  After losing his battle against a Congenital Heart defect, Beth and Jeromy Dorsing started Andrew's Bravery Box to help families who may be facing similar struggles and also as a way to help Andrew's memory live on.  Andrew played T-Ball and Rookie Ball for CRALL and loved playing and being a part of a team!  If you'd like to learn more about Andrew's story, you can read about him at www.AndrewsBraveryBox.org.  

CRALL is partnering with Andrew's Bravery Box to collect toys to keep the boxes full!  On Player Appreciation Day, teams should bring donations of new, small toys they have collected to the designated area.  Our goal is to have each player donate at least one item in the $5-$10 range.  Please see the Suggested toy list on the other side for ideas, but we always believe that the best donation is a toy the children in your life would enjoy!


Help Build a Brick Walkway at CRALL!!

Help Build a Brick Walkway at CRALL!!

CRALL has an exciting opportunity for you enshrine your family or company’s name at the park for years to come, while also helping out with a much needed improvement for our baseball complex.   

Here’s How: To provide safe and easy access to the park, especially for our less mobile visitors, a brick walkway will be installed at the main entrance to our fields. You can purchase your own personalized commemorative brick that will help fund the project, and make this a wonderful memorial walkway into a place that holds countless fond memories for so many. It is also a great way for businesses to advertise and support the CRALL program.  

  Our goal is to sell enough bricks in the next four months to start construction of the walkway this spring. The total cost for the entire project will be around $30,000.

 There are three different brick options to choose from: 4" x 8" bricks (text only) are $50, 8" x 8" bricks (text only) are $100, and 8" x 8" bricks (text and logo) are $150.  The engraving will be done by a local company in Andover.

Please follow the link below and order your personalized entrance monument brick today.
