Local wiffleball players in the capital region are set to participate in one of the nation's biggest wiffleball events. From August 11th-13th, in Essex, Vermont, wiffleball teams from around the country will play in The 16th Annual Travis Roy Foundation Charity Wiffleball Tournament.

According to the foundation's website:

The Travis Roy Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the life of individuals with spinal cord injuries and their families by providing adaptive equipment and to finding a cure through increased funding of research, resulting in self-reliance and the ability to be as independent as possible.

Anthony Auspelmyer, who will be playing in the tournament, joined Producer Woods in studio as the charity event nears.

"Everybody is in great spirits and a great mood; everybody is there for one common cause and coming together," Auspelmyer said. "Even though we're competing and trying to win, everybody is there for one common goal and that's to raise money for the foundation...Travis Roy is one of the most inspiring people you'll ever meet."

All funds donated go to the Travis Roy Foundation that benefits and creates awareness for people with spinal cord injuries.
