LoMo camp has new home in January
For the third straight year, Marlins outfielder Logan Morrison will conduct his annual “LoMo: Camp for a Cure.” The two-day baseball instructional camp will take place Jan. 12-13 at the ELEV|8 Sports Institute in Delray Beach, Fla.
The previous two years, Morrison hosted the camp at the Roger Dean Stadium complex in Jupiter, Fla.
Morrison, the Marlins 2012 Robert Clemente Award nominee, started to camp to raise awareness and funds for the American Lung Association. In 2010, Morrison lost his father, Tom, to lung cancer.
In recent years the camp has raised more than $60,000 for the American Lung Assocation’s Florida chapter.
“Since 2010, LoMo: Camp for a Cure has really done something special with the American Lung Association,” said Morrison. “We have made a long-lasting impact on the fight against lung cancer and that will only continue to grow this year. I’m excited about our new set up at ELEV|8 Sports Institute and am looking forward to another great camp.”
Attendees of the camp will receive first class professional baseball instruction, a camp t-shirt, an autograph session, and various prizes. For more information about LoMo: Camp for a Cure please visit: www.lomo4lungs.org.
