This tournament is a fundraiser for Batten Disease, and specifically for a 9 year old boy in Rockton, Brock who has this disease.
Read all about Brock's story on their website, https://www.cowboyforacause.com/ and sign up for the bags tournament there as well https://www.cowboyforacause.com/projects. You can also sign up on the day at the festival.
The foundation was established with the sole purpose to help children affected by Batten disease. We have a financial goal of 2 million dollars to pay for a treatment for a cure of Batten disease, specifically, CNL8.
Brock is a 9 year old Rockton, IL boy with diminishing motor and speech skills. We are asking anyone within our community and afar to help. Batten disease is a progressive neurological disorder that takes the child in the end, if no treatment is given. Dr. Jill Weiner and her team are aggressively working on a treatment and until we reach the goal Brock and other children affected by Batten disease will continue to regress. Please find it in your hearts to help.
