Lowe hits homers for good cause

Suffolk native Brandon Lowe recently launched the Home Runs for Hope campaign to help the Tampa Bay Crisis Center.

In a news release Thursday afternoon, Lowe, along with his wife, Madison, announced their Home Runs For Hope campaign. For every home run Lowe hits for the Tampa Bay Rays this season, he will donate $100 to the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay.

The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay provides a range of programs and services to ensure nobody in their community goes through a crisis alone. In his statement, Lowe said mental health is something that has impacted his family.

“We are passionate about helping in any way that we can,” Lowe said. “We want to bring more awareness to mental health and help those who are in need of support.”

Lowe is currently at 15 home runs on the season. His strong season thus far has also put him in the running for American League Rookie of the Year.

Lowe is a graduate of Nansemond River High School.
