Dodgeball tournament to benefit Trent Almeida

Staff Reports

A dodgeball tournament is Sept. 10 to raise money to help Trent Almeida, who was diagnosed with B-Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in April 2017.

Trent is the son of Douglas County Sheriff’s Investigator Nate and Jen Almeida.

Last week the family received bone marrow test results which showed no leukemia.

“The Almeida family is overjoyed with excitement and say thank-you to all those who have supported him,” said Sgt. Bernadette Smith. “Trent is now undergoing a 100 day cycle of chemotherapy and undergoing the next phase of treatment so his test results will continue to show no leukemia.”

The tournament is 1 p.m. at Sierra Lutheran High School located at 3601 Romans Road in northern Douglas County, starting with a tailgate barbecue in the parking lot. Carson Valley Little League will be selling hot dogs and hamburgers, and there will be a bake sale table with desserts.

The dodgeball tournament will begin shortly after the tailgate lunch. Teams will have 8-10 players and the cost is $20 a player.

There will be a small entry fee for spectators and a donation box will be available for Trent.
