Home Run Derby event raises money for a good cause - WSFA.com Montgomery Alabama news.

Friends, family of Ethan Kadish swing for the fences

LOVELAND, OH (FOX 19) -

Friends and family of Ethan Kadish are coming together and swinging for the fences at Loveland Middle School.

Ethan is recovering at Cincinnati's Children's hospital after being struck by lightning at a summer camp near Indianapolis. On June 29, at Goldman Union Camp Institute, Ethan was teaching a group of younger children how to play ultimate frisbee when he was struck.

The initial strike caused Ethan to go into cardiac arrest.

On Sunday, dozens showed up for a Home Run Derby competition. All proceeds raised from the event went to a non-profit organization helping Ethan's family with uninsured accident-related expenses.  

"We are so appreciative of the level of support and compassion that we have seen from our community of Loveland, from the Greater Cincinnati community and from all around," said Alexia Kadish, Ethan's mother.

"Everyone's joining Team Ethan and supporting him. Ethan has always been a team player, and now he's captain of a very large team that's going to continue to root him on as he continues to heal and recover with his therapy," explains Scott Kadish, Ethan's father.   

For more information on Ethan's progression, or to donate to the cause, visit Help, Hope, Live for Ethan Kadish.
