In January during the Ballinger versus Wall basketball game the first annual Cats For A Cure fundraiser was held, to raise money for cancer research and a cure.

The games that night were dedicated to all those who've lost the fight and to those who won't quit fighting. All proceeds from that night and the shirt sales went to Trent's Retreat, an oasis for families who have a child with pediatric cancer. On

Monday March 27 the Ballinger Bearcat Athletic Booster Club was proud to presented to David and Misty Ueckert of Trent's Retreat a check for $612. Organizers thanked everyone who participated in Cats For A Cure.
