Tournament raises money for those with spinal cord injuries

The 18th annual Travis Roy Foundation Wiffle Ball Tournament had the same goal as all 17 before it – set a new fundraising record.

Thirty-two teams have raised as much money as possible, and will compete from August 9-11 in the tournament at Little Fenway in Essex, Vt.

The foundation is dedicated to Travis Roy, a former Boston University hockey player who suffered a spinal cord injury in his first collegiate shift on the ice. All funds go toward aiding those with spinal cord injuries.

The tournament has raised more than $5 million in its 17 years of existence, with last year’s pot totaling $617,634.

The money count will take place at Little Fenway on Saturday, August 10 at 2:30 p.m.
