(Fargo, ND) -- Roger Maris Jr. is in the FM metro talking about his father's legendary baseball career while also showing support for cancer patients.

"You know I think just trying to be able to continue his legacy and promote the cancer center and get the cancer center to continue doing what they're doing and keep building on what they're doing so that it becomes a national destination for cancer I think is just an honor," said Maris Jr.

Maris is promoting the second annual Roger Maris All-Star week to support the work of the Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo. The week is series of numerous events including sports camps, a youth academy and a celebrity golf tournament. The week runs June 13th through the 19th at locations around the FM metro. Organizers say one hundred percent of the funds raised will remain local to support the work of the Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center.
