Several years ago, Astros pitcher Lucas Harrell’s father, Brad, was diagnosed with diabetes. Since then, Lucas has educated himself on the disease and become an advocate for research.
On November 17, Astros employees, Orbit and fans joined Team Harrell at the American Diabetes Association’s Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes event at Minute Maid Park. Lucas called on fans, employees and supporters to donate to the organization’s largest annual fundraising event. Team Harrell raised $5,600 benefiting the American Diabetes Association Houston.
