Player Supported Charities

Glen Perkins Fifteen's 5K benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Giving back to the community has been at the foundation of the Twins organization since the team's arrival in Minnesota in 1961. Players and alumni take that commitment to heart, supporting a wide variety of causes across Twins Territory. Wearing a Twins uniform means more than being a ballplayer - it also means joining a tradition of giving that dates back more than 50 years.

Together, current and former players raise more than $1 million a year for charities and causes close to their hearts.

Alumni Support These Causes and Charities:
Bert Blyleven: Parkinson's Research, Stroke Awareness
Rod Carew: Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, Be the Match
