Peoria, Arizona —— When does Braden Bishop sleep?

After his summer season ended in early September, the Seattle Mariners outfield prospect spent much of the last month preparing for and executing a fundraiser auction for Alzheimer’s disease awareness and research through his charity, 4MOM.

If you’ll remember, we spoke to Braden about the charity auction earlier this month, and shared links to some of the items available for bidding. Now that this fundraiser has come and gone, we’re happy to pass along the news that Bishop and 4MOM raised $3,170.50 towards Alzheimer’s research and awareness — an incredible total and solid execution for the outfielder’s first fundraiser with his charity, and both a sign of the support his family and charity have, and an omen of good things to come.

Now, even as Bishop is busy playing for the Peoria Javelinas in the prestigious Arizona Fall League through mid-November, he’s moved forward with another new outreach and fundraising effort towards Alzheimer’s disease awareness: partnering with a company called Rivet Revolution to produce custom ‘4MOM’ bracelets to raise money to fight Alzheimer’s this winter. If you missed out on the auction and are still moved to support Alzheimer’s disease awareness and research through Bishop’s passion, this isn’t a bad way to do it.

Bishop had mentioned this project to me in passing earlier this month when we were discussing his charity auction; to see him and the folks at Rivet Revolution moving forward with it so quickly — especially during his AFL schedule, no less — is remarkable. But, seriously, when does the Seattle Mariners prospect sleep?

“Brick by brick,” I texted Bishop earlier tonight. “It keeps growing!”

“One at a time,” he responded. “Still blows me away to this day.”

Ten dollars from every bracelet sold goes towards Alzheimer’s research and awareness through 4MOM — a worthy cause and wonderful effort worth your support if you are so inclined to do so. Braden Bishop continues to prove us right for naming him our Minor League Baseball Player of the Year in 2017, and it has far more to do with his character and work off the field than what he’ll do on the field for the Seattle Mariners.
