Website of the Week: Ben Rouse’s Brewers Mission 162

Ben Rouse has an interesting story. The Milwaukee Brewers’ fan, who has  Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia, is on a mission to see all 162 Brewers games this season. Ben received a bone marrow transplant and doing great ever since. He isn’t out of the clear yet, but things are looking better every day.

In 2011, Ben decided he wanted to see all 162 Brewers games and thus began planning. With a little help from the Brewers he is making it come true this year. On his season long journey he is raising awareness for Be the Match Registry.

It has been fun so far following Ben, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season goes for him. I think you’ll like the site as well, so head on over and check it out at Ben Rouse’s Brewers Mission 162. Ben does a daily blog which has been fun to follow as he meets new interesting people along the way. You can also donate to Be the Match on his site and I encourage you to do so.

      The Baseball Club seems to have a regulated process to be considered for charity ideas.

      How does supporting and paying for a person for all the travel and the expenses to attend every stadium in the season help the cause? How does it assistin raising money for those that need treatment or cannot afford treatment? Why just focus on one type of cancer? It appears that you also have to pay to be on the registry if you need a match. How much money is being raised for the people who need the treatment and cannot pay for it?

      Honestly, I don’t care as much about what the Brewers decide to do or not do. I do like what the kid is trying to do though and I have to give him a lot of respect for that. He is trying to raise awareness for an affliction he has dealt with in the past. That’s what matters here. If you have a problem with the Brewers decision, I suggest you take it up with the Brewers.
