Baseball Tournament Raises Money for Treyden's Cabin

Community support is helping keep the memory of a little boy who lost his battle with caner alive by funding a project meant to bring smiles to little ones fighting the disease.

The Stratford High School baseball team hosted their tournament Saturday in honor of Treyden Kurtzweil. Treyden was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia at two months old and lost his battle just days after his first birthday.

More than $1,800 from t-shirt sales and raffle purchases before and during the tournament went to benefit Treyden's Cabin. Treyeden's Cabin will be a more imaginative and fun portion of the Marshfield Clinic.

"Treyden's Cabin is like a remembrance of Treyden, but it's also a place for kids to use their imagination and kind of get their mind off of cancer and if it can put a smile on their face for a split second, that puts a smile on our face," Treyden's dad, Travis Kurtzweil, explained.

The family spent many hours in the Marshfield Clinic and wanted to help children battling cancer in the future.

A Marshfield representative says they've exceeded their goal of $50,000 and adds the 3D murals will now extend beyond just the waiting room and into exam and treatment rooms as well.
