Guests will enjoy a pre-game barbeque in the Bullpen Gate Plaza with face painters, clowns, a special visit by Mr. Met, Mets Alumni, and the Mets’ wives. Watch the game from your seats in the Big Apple section and cheer on one of our very own enCourage Kid as he or she throws out the first pitch!

For 33 years, enCourage Kids Foundation has empowered kids facing health challenges to lead their most awesome lives through cost free family outings and uplifting hospital programs. By bringing laughter, comfort and countless smiles to more than 400,000 children annually, our programs offer relief from the constant burden of treatment, hospital stays and doctor appointments.

Our programs reach kids facing a variety of health issues – from those receiving chemo treatments in a clinic to those who live with a chronic illness that may not be visible. What they all have in common is that they deserve the same opportunities to laugh, to play, and to have fun – whether they are being treated in the hospital or living with their struggles at home.
