Members of the Genesee Kickball League came together today to help raise funds to defray medical costs for Zachary Kaus.
Kaus was diagnosed with acute aplastic leukemia in September. Both of his sisters were perfect matches for a bone marrow donation, and on Dec. 22, he received a bone marrow transplant from his oldest sister.
"It took perfectly, everything is good and I’m leukemia free now," said Kaus, pictured above.
Kaus was a member of the kickball league, but he's still amazed that so many people turned out to Batavia Sports Park today.
"It’s crazy," he said. "I didn’t think there would be this many people, this big a turnout. But they love playing for a cause, obviously. It means a lot for sure. I want to thank everybody for coming out. It’s a little overwhelming, but it’s awesome to watch."
