The third annual new and young professionals kickball
tournament, held in Plainville on August 18, benefited the
Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) in honor of
local teenager
Brian Bianchi, who was diagnosed with the
debilitating, degenerative neuro-muscular disorder. The
seven teams presented Bianchi with a check for $1,250 for
research and New York Yankees' tickets for the teenager!
Players enjoyed a morning of kickball on fields donated by the
Plainville Recreation Department followed by a cookout lunch
sponsored by Becker Professional Education.
Marcum took home the title and the trophy this year, beat-
ing last year's champions KPMG in the championship round.
