Special Tournament for Little Kavon
One of the great things about sports has nothing to do with winning
games, hitting home runs or scoring touchdowns. It's when athletes become
people and help those in need. In boxing there is an organization that
helps retired fighters in need. Baseball has a similiar group to assist
old ball players in dire straits.
Oct 25, 2003, Coney Island
The handball community is rallying around Sydell and Kendell Lewis. They
received the devastating news that there three year old son, Kavon, has
cancer. A three year old is not supposed to get sick. The worse thing
that should happen is that while playing he falls and a band aid needs to
be applied to a scraped knee.
A tournament is being held in Coney Island to raise funds for the Lewis
We may fight and argue on the court for every point but there is a genuine
camraderie off the court. So come to Coney Island on October
25th for a worthy cause.
To the Lewis family our prayers and
thoughts are with you. To little Kavon, when you get through this
ordeal I hope you never need more than a band aid on a skinned knee.
