WNTI DJs Support "Free to Breathe" Through Baseball Fundraiser

Hackettstown, N.J.  –WNTI disc jockeys are banding together and supporting the organization Free to Breathe in a baseball tournament at 12 p.m. October 18, 2014 at Waterloo Village Field in Stanhope. 

Free to Breathe’s mission is to ensure surviving lung cancer is the expectation, not the exception. The organization’s vision is to double lung cancer survival by 2022.  To turn this vision into reality, Free to Breathe focuses on funding research with the greatest potential to save lives.  It helps all patients fully understand their treatment options, ensures molecular tumor testing is standard of care and doubles the number of lung cancer patients participating in clinical trials.

WNTI disc jockeys participating in this event include Trevor B. Power, host of “Into the 10 O’Clock Hour;” Gary Alt, host of “Crossroads;” Brian Kathenes; co-host of “Value This with Brian and Leon Radio Show;” and Al B. host of “Saturday Evening with Al B.” 

They will be playing against the Hoboken Nine, a participating team in the Vintage Base Ball League.  This event is being coordinated by Jim Dennison who is a 10 year lung cancer survivor and friend and past volunteer of WNTI.

There is no cost to attend, but the suggested donation is $10 per person.

“I am so pleased that these disc jockeys are participating in this opportunity,” says Jon Lewis, Broadcast Manager at Centenary College.  “It is supporting a good cause and attendees will be able to meet the hosts of their favorite radio shows.”
