Bald Eagle Wrestling benefitting breast cancer battle
Dozens of young wrestlers will hit the mat for a great cause Saturday at the Bald Eagle Wrestling Invitational.
This year’s event is a benefit for Sergeant Robyn Federolf, a 14-year veteran with the Vail police department who’s battling breast cancer.
“This year we have chosen to support a member of our community who is battling breast cancer,” said Tim Comroe, who’s helping run Bald Eagle Wrestling and the tournament.
Fetterolf is a single parent with a 5 year old daughter. She’s undergoing treatment for breast cancer for the second time in the last five years, Comroe said.
They’ll be selling pink T-shirts at the tournament for $20. On the front is a Bald Eagle Wrestling Logo; on the back is information about Breast Cancer Awareness.
They’ll also be running a bean bag toss starting at 1 p.m. Bean bags are $5 each.
Most of the money goes to help Fetterolf with her mounting medical bills.
Wrestlers have to be registered by 1 p.m. Friday.
The Bald Eagle Booster Club will be selling breakfast and lunch items throughout the tournament.
