The 6th annual ‘Swinging for Dylan’ softball tournament is this weekend and all are encouraged to come support an adorable local boy battling cancer. The ‘Swinging for Dylan’ tournament was originally started by Brittney Murry and Sky Christensen who wanted to help their dear friend Cassie Maldonado whose son had been diagnosed with cancer. “We lost Dylan to Leukemia 6 years ago in April,” shares Cassie. “He was 7 years old. Since then, we have kept [the tournament going each year] for a child from the Basin who is fighting cancer.” This year the tournament will benefit 2-year-old Noah who was diagnosed with Wilms Kidney Cancer when he was 18 months old. He has had one whole kidney and another quarter kidney removed and will be on medication and treatment for the rest of his life. This weekend’s tournament will run
August 9th through the 11th
at the Vernal Softball fields. Today is the final day to register your team. Contact Cassie at
