Roller derby benefit event is Saturday in Eagle
EAGLE — The 10th Mountain Roller Dolls bout against Continental Dividers of the Ark Valley High Rollers is scheduled for Saturday at the Eagle Pool and Ice Rink. The team will donate a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to Cohen Strong, a family organization set up to support Cohen Scriver in his fight against neuroblastoma.
Cohen, 3, was diagnosed with stage three neuroblastoma in June. He has an inoperable tumor on his spine and is receiving chemotherapy treatments.
“Cohen has overcome so much already,” his family said in a statement. “He is facing this challenge with force and strength. It is time for the rest of us to get Cohen-Strong!”
