RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- The 12th Annual Wiffle for Cancer tournament in memory of Nick Currey will be held on Sunday, June 12 at noon at Ridgewood High School.
In the past 11 years, hundreds of players of all ages and skill levels have taken part in the event, which has raised over $155,000 to date. All proceeds benefit the Nick Currey Fund and are used to support research to find a cure for Ewing sarcoma.
The fund was created in memory of Nick Currey, Ridgewood High School Class of 2004, who lost his 14-month battle with Ewing sarcoma on Nov. 3, 2005 at the age of 19. Nick was a lifelong player in the Ridgewood Baseball and Softball Association all the way through 12th grade.
Participants are invited to put together a team of 3 to 5 players and register at www.wiffleforcancer.org . There is a $50 registration fee per team. The tournament features two divisions–a “competitive” division for those teams who want to have fun, but also want to compete seriously, and a “recreational” division for those teams that primarily just want to have fun. Check-in for the tournament starts at 11:30 a.m. while the games start at noon.
Ridgewood High School is located at 627 East Ridgewood Ave.
