Yankees HOPE week: Three's a charm

On Wednesday May 24, 2017 the Yankees held the third day of HOPE, honoring Max Chwatko and Alex Travin, known as The Comedy Kids. In 2015, the parents of Max learned that their second child, 6-year-old Scarlett, had a brain tumor. Max and Alex decided to take the matter into their own hands by telling jokes in exchange for donations they planned to give to pediatric brain cancer research. Consequently, (and with some parental assistance) "A Kids' Brain Tumor Cure Foundation" was born. After raising $20,000, the group created a web site assisting other children in their efforts to raise money.  (Credit: YankeesonDemand / New York Yankees)
