REMINDER: Minisink Student “Walks For A Cure” In Honor of Vinny Vespa

Jillian Dolce’s 3rd Annual Walk For Lymphoma Set For September 29

For the past three years, Minisink Valley student Jillian Dolce has completed a “Walk For Lymphoma” with all proceeds going to Lymphoma research at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital.  Each year she dedicates her walk to local resident who is battling the disease.  This year, Jillian has decided to do her walk in honor of Monroe Woodbury wrestler Vinny Vespa who is currently receiving chemotherapy for Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

For anyone who wants to join Jillian in her quest to “Find a Cure, One Step at a Time,” this year’s event is scheduled for September 29th at Shannen Park in Slate Hill, NY.  Registration will be at 10:00 am and the walk will go from 11:00 am until 2:00 pm.  Recommended donations are $10 for adults and $5 for children.  Anyone interested in learning more about the event can go to Jillian’s website and/or check out her flyer.

On behalf of the entire Section 9 wrestling community……thank you Jillian!!!
