Dunk One In for Cancer supported the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund.
A two-hour basketball tournament/bar mitzvah project raised more than $2,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund on Sunday. The Dunk One In for Cancer tournament organized by Mill Pond School sixth-grader Will Schiffman drew 30 kids, said Will's mother, Wendy. The Boston Sports Club at Westborough hosted the event. Will Schiffman organized the tournament to help people with cancer. He was inspired by a boy named Josh, a boy he met while playing for the Westborough 10-Year-Old All-Star baseball team two years ago. Josh died of cancer later that year.

Lynnfield resident Jane Tecce lost two brothers to heart disease and received her own transplant less than two years ago. Now, she wants to help spread the word about organ donation.
Jane Tecce has the unique perspective of having experienced both sides of being an organ donor. Years ago after her son's death at the age of 24, his organs were donated so that others could have a new chance at life. Now, Tecce herself is still recovering from a heart transplant that she received some 16 months ago. She also received a kidney transplant at that time. "My kids are starting to have kids now. I'm being a grammy. I can't imagine not being here," she said in a recent conversation with Patch.com. Tecce said that she was first diagnosed with heart disease about 12 years ago. Tecce moved to Lynnfield two years ago and grew up in Wakefield, graduating from Wakefield Memorial High School. Her family owns Santoro's in Peabody, she …

Season starts with sunshine.
Mother Nature gave Westborough youth baseball and softball players a great reason to be outside on Saturday. And then Westborough Little League and Softball President Rob Nagi offered 10 reasons why kids play baseball and softball. Starting with the tenth reason, the answers were:"because my parents asked me to play"; "because I want to see an opportunity to get onto a high school, college or professional team that I realize I have to start playing now"; "to do something other than homework"; "to build my own self-confidence"; "to make new friends" ; "to be part of a team"; "to stay in shape, and to get some exercise"; "for the excitement and challenge of competition"; "to improve my skills, and to learn to play a game that people seem to …
