Children’s Health Fund’s (CHF) Yankees Home Run Club is a giving club where members make a pledge to CHF for every home run that the Yankees hit in a season. It is a fun way you can root for the Yankees and help bring quality care to homeless and low-income children.
In 1988, Yankees legend Don Mattingly was CHF’s first Captain and helped launch the Children's Health Fund’s Yankees Home Run Club to raise money and awareness for children in need of health care. After the first baseman's retirement, centerfielder Bernie Williams stepped up to the plate to captain the Club, followed by Johnny Damon, who took over the role from 2006 to 2009.
In 2011, Robinson Cano, the Yankees All-Star second baseman and winner of the 2011 Home Run Derby, followed in the footsteps of these Yankees greats by becoming the newest Home Run Club Captain. Cano shares CHF’s commitment to giving kids a chance at a healthy future – he is a true champion on and off the field.
Thanks to the generous support of loyal Yankees/CHF fans, the Club has grown over the years and raised more than $1.6 million to help ensure medical care for the nation's most vulnerable children.
