LI boys serve up awareness through juvenile arthritis tennis tournament

Posted: Updated:
GLENWOOD LANDING -

Three Long Island boys diagnosed with arthritis at a young age are not letting it stop their cause. 

Andrew D’Ambrosio, John D’ambrosio and Hudson De Risi each suffer from different forms of juvenile arthritis.

They created a round robin tennis event, "Play for RA - A Tennis Tournament for Rheumatoid Arthritis" to raise awareness and money to help find a cure.

The event in Glenwood Landing raised more than $15,000. The boys say all proceeds will go toward Cohen Children's Medical Center.
