Unleash Your Brave Benefit

An event to support a special young girl is Saturday, September 16 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Monches Ballpark.

It's an event for Warriors For Emmie.

There will be a bags tournament, dunk tank, kids games and face painting. 

Emersyn was diagnosed with Medullablastoma, a cancerous tumor of the brain at the age of six. Over the last seven months, she has endured countless surgeries, aggressive chemotherapy and invasive radiation treatments in tandem with persistent physical and occupational therapy to rebuild motor skills, relearn basic activities like talking, walking and swallowing.

Emersyn's care has required frequent trips to Children's Hospital for treatment and around the clock hands-on care for all her physical needs at home. 

All of the funds raised go directly to Emersyn, and her future care.
