Wrestling Event Aims to Help Cure Cancer

December 5, 2018

ANDOVER -- Local high school grapplers are set to wrestle for a cure for cancer.

Wresting all-stars from the Merrimack Valley Conference will square off against all-stars from the Middlesex League at Andover High on Thursday.

Tickets are $5. Proceeds from the event will be donated to Pin Cancer, which was founded in 2011 by former wrestler Dan Tramontozzi after finding out his mother was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. Pin Cancer partnered with the USA Wrestling Foundation to expand on its mission.

Locals scheduled to wrestle on the MVC squad include Evan Kinney (Chelmsford, 106), Danny Lightfoot (Tewksbury, 113), Evan Goodall (Chelmsford, 145) and Dylan Chandler (Tewksbury, 285).
