The Rockin' Cocks
and KPS Paintball
are hosting a 3-Man tournament for a local kid who has cancer. His name is Mason Thomas and he was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma* at the age of 5. He went into remission but he's recently relapsed and has to travel between VA and NYC for treatments.
The tournament is scheduled for February 21, 2010
at KPS Paintball in Richmond, VA
. The entry fee for a 3-man team is $100.
Registration will be hosted by The Ishan Gala Foundation, a local non-profit dedicated to support children's cancer research.
The registration link will be up shortly and this post will be updated when registration is open.
*Neuroblastoma is a form of cancer that starts in certain types of very primitive developing nerve cells found in an embryo or fetus. (The term neuro indicates "nerves," while blastoma refers to a cancer that affects immature or developing cells). This type of cancer occurs in infants and young children. It is rarely found in children older than 10 years.

Do I have to raise money to play in the tournament?
Absolutely not. Your only commitment is the $100 entry fee. However, any additional money that you raise will go directly to helping Mason and his family in his fight against Neuroblastoma. All donations (including registration) are tax deductible. Also, we are working on a prize for the team with the highest contribution.
