Golf tourney for childhood cancer


Staff report



The 2015 Mayor’s Tournament golf outing, to benefit the American Childhood Cancer Organization and to help find a cure for all forms of childhood cancer, will be Sept. 20 at Elks 797 Golf Course.

Wilmington Mayor Randy Riley is hosting the tournament. In 1978, he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Malignant Melanoma.

“I have walked the Survivors Lap of the annual Relay for Life Cancer Walk almost every year,” Riley said. “This year, I carried my grandson, Clayton. Clayton was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma just 10 days before the walk. And just three days before the walk, Clayton lost his right eye to cancer.

“Help us find a cure.”
