DENVER -- A local man is making it his life passion to help kids with cancer by treating them and their families to a day at the ballpark.

He calls it the Youth Cancer Baseball Tour, for the past nine years, Greg Dufree has been taking kids with cancer to ballparks all across the country, all expenses paid.

A 12-year-old, Mara Dawkins and her family have been a part of the tour for the past three years.

She said, for her, getting to go to a baseball game has helped her take her mind off the pain of her diagnosis.

This year, Greg is trying to raise money to take the kids to seven ballparks, one of those of cours being the Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field.

If you'd like to help, Greg has a GoFund Me account set up titled: Take kids with cancer to MLB Games.
