HUGHESVILLE, LYCOMING COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Three wrestlers, all from different high schools, are coming together to help another athlete when he needs it the most.
17-year-old Timmy Ward, a standout football player and wrestler at Canton Area High School, just beat his toughest opponent yet — cancer.
Ward’s hard-fought battle against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma caught the attention of Hughesville High School Junior Luke Gorg.
“The wrestling community is definitely a large community,“ said Gorg. “I know he’s such a great athlete, and I didn’t want him to be suffering alone.“
He rounded up two more wrestlers, Gable Strickland from Benton and Kyler Crawford from Milton.
The boys are organizing a fundraiser for Ward and his family, even though they barely know him.
That benefit is taking place on April 28th from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Hughesville Volunteer Fire Department.
