Rizzo, Schwarber Spend Weekend Giving Back

While we wait for the MLB hot stove to heat up, a couple Cubs were busy this weekend with their respective charities.

Anthony Rizzo was back in his hometown of Parkland, Florida for the 6th annual Walk-Off For Cancer put on by his charity, the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation. This year, an event-record $960,000 was raised for families battling cancer. Rizzo was even joined by a few of his 2017 Cubs’ teammates, Jon Jay and Rene Rivera.

Schwarber recently raised over $280,000 for the program at his inaugural Block Party in Chicago.
