While the 2020 Hutch Award Luncheon in-person fundraiser was cancelled due to the coronavirus you can still step up to the plate by donating to Fred Hutch. This year, your gifts will fuel Fred Hutch’s research to end the COVID-19 pandemic, from tracking the virus to developing tests, treatments and vaccines. To make a gift, click here.

And, if you missed our fabulous celebration of this year's 55th Hutch Award® winner — the Mariners Dee Gordon — you can still watch the event, or share it with your friends here.

The Hutch Award is ranked as one of the top annual awards given to a Major League Baseball player. It recognizes the player who best exemplifies the fighting spirit and competitive desire of Fred Hutchinson, the legendary pitcher and manager who died of cancer at the age of 45.

55th Hutch Award® Winner

Dee Gordon

Dee Gordon, Seattle Mariners

Dee Gordon is a two-time All-Star, Silver Slugger, Hits leader, and Gold Glove Award winner. Yet, his efforts off the field and in the community are even more impressive. Dee created his Flash of Hope program in 2015 while in Miami to support kids and families who have been affected by domestic violence. When he was six, Dee lost his own mother to domestic abuse. Her memory has not only motivated him to accomplish his dreams, but also inspired his passion to support families dealing with domestic violence and help children who have lost a parent. In 2018, Dee brought his Flash of Hope program to Seattle and partnered with the Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, LifeWire, New Beginnings, and API Chaya to host families for a day at the ballpark. In addition, Dee has partnered with Food for the Hungry, Striking Out Poverty, Boys & Girls Clubs, Seattle Children’s, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Mariners Care. Dee overcame a terrible tragedy to make a positive impact in the lives of others. Fred Hutch is honored to pay tribute to Dee Gordon as the 55th Hutch Award® winner. Read more about Dee here.
