PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There is a new challenge going viral and it’s all for a great cause close to the hearts of Philadelphia Phillies fans. The “Handstand Up To Brain Cancer” challenge benefits the Darren Daulton Foundation and several members of the Phillies are already giving it a shot.
The all-Star catcher, known as “Dutch” in Philadelphia, died of brain cancer in 2017 at the age of 55.
The foundation is challenging people to post a video or photograph doing a handstand on their social media platforms.
The challenge was launched with the help of Phillies catcher and foundation ambassador Andrew Knapp.
Knapp nominated Phillies manager Joe Girardi and actor Miles Teller to partake in the challenge. Teller is a Downingtown native and self-proclaimed Phillies fan.
Girardi posted a video of his handstand earlier this week.
