TICONDEROGA - The Tour de Joelle /Anything on Wheels Wiffleball tournament was played at the Little League Park in Ticonderoga recently.
For nearly 10 hours 10 teams played a double-elimination tournament to raise money for inner city children's school supplies. It raised more than $600.
The effort spearheaded by Pat and Shelly Hendrix, local EMS volunteers, after hearing Joelle Stonitsch tell her 100 mile ride story - The Tour de Joelle /Anything on Wheels.
Ages 9 and older played family style in the glaring sun and high temperatures.
"I am amazed at the hearts of people who grab hold of purpose beyond themselves, to give a hand up to people they will never meet," Patricia Stonitsch said. "Beautiful love. Beautiful gift. Life giving outcome. Thank you all so much for your efforts."
The Cole Mars team won the tournament with the Joelle Stonitsch team second.
Bryce Gautreau was the male Most Valuable Player, while Krystal Burns was the female MVP.
Helping organize and run the tournament were Amy Campney, Chuck Campney, Joe Tucker, Mark Munson, Dillon Bush, Kyle Stonitsch, Ken Stonitsch, Rich Stonitsch, Patricia Stonitsch and others.
