Jordi's Jam 2013

Posted: Updated:

This year's Jordi's Jam will benefit the Texas Leukemia Society.  It's a co-ed softball tournament taking place April 13th.  The tournament will be at Wichita Fall Parks and Recreation Softball Complex.

This is the third annual event.  The first one was in May 2011 to benefit 20-year-old Jordan Mathis. She was diagnosed with AML in February 2011. After two failed rounds of chemo, she underwent a bone marrow transplant.

The tournament was to help defray medical expenses. Jordan reached remission on June 7, 2011. Jordan wanted to give back or pay it forward as it were. Last year tournament proceeds went to Taylor Ishee, a 19-year-old bone marrow transplant recipient from Argyle, TX. This year, Jordan has decided to give the proceeds to Texas Leukemia Society.

On April 10, Chilli's is having a 10% night with proceeds going to Jordi's Jam. There will be information on how to be a donor of bone marrow & umbilical cord available at the tournament. There is still time to sponsor the tournament.
