Co-ed softball tourney to benefit cancer victim

Monday, August 23, 2010

Kelsie Peterson
A benefit for Kelsie Peterson, a 2009 Cherokee Washington High graduate who was recently diagnosed with cancer, will be held Sunday, Sept. 5 in Cherokee.

Organizers are planning a Co-ed Slowpitch Softball Tournament at Wescott Park in Cherokee that day, with proceeds benefiting Peterson to help defray mounting medical costs.

Kelsie has begun rigorous chemotherapy treatment that will continue for the next year. She participated in many sports at WHS and was enrolled at Dakota State University and is a member of the DSU softball team. Because of her illness, she will be unable to return to college this upcoming year.

Interested softball teams and players can learn more information and register for the tourney by contacting Misty Bruhn at 229-5235, or Alanna Valentine at 299-4026 by Wednesday, Sept. 1.

Special activities, a barbecue cook-out and various raffles will be held in conjunction with the tourney, for a free-will donation.

Team entry fees for the tourney are $50 per 10-member team, and $5 per extra player.
