Duluth Arrowhead Recap
Thanks for playing in the Arrowhead tournament and benefit for last year's Champion Renee Lange (Tenacious Divas, WBB). In honor of Renee and her fight with Breast cancer, the MVA donated funds from Arrowhead to the Susan G Koman for the Cure fund. Renee participated in the 2013 Arrowhead in the WBB division with her team Tenacious Divas who finished in 2nd place. Check out Renee’s blog site - http://detoursoflife.blogspot.com.
