Each year the Texas Rangers Wives join forces to spearhead a fundraising initiative that will assist a community organization. This year’s beneficiary, Kenna’s Kids is a nonprofit organization that reaches out to individual families with children experiencing medical challenges at a young age. Annually, Kenna’s Kids selects three children and their families to assist with medical bills and provide a network of support.
In addition, the Rangers Wives often join forces to assist one another in their individual and other initiatives to support the community they consider “home” during the baseball season. The Texas Rangers Wives will act as hosts for the inaugural Rangers Race on Monday, September 3 at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington to benefit the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.
