EAST HANOVER — The Florham Park / East Hanover Football Club, click here, home of The Falcons, is hosting a sold-out #WeAreJohnnyStrong Football Clinic Fundraiser for cancer victim Johnny Kinney, 12, of East Hanover on Saturday, March 20 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. at Volunteers Memorial Turf Field, 37 Elm Street, Florham Park.
Attendance capacity has been reached and registration has been closed but donations can still be made with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Kinney family through donations by Venmo @FPEHFootball-Club.
In December Johnny Kenny was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. Earlier in March, he had four surgeries to remove the tumor.
Marisa Jones, a family friend, of Randolph, formerly of East Hanover, has put together a GoFundMe page to help with expenses. Click here to donate.
“Johnny is a vibrant 12-year old that has gotten some devastating news. He has osteosarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer. He is preparing to tackle this cancer diagnosis like he tackles his opponents in a Falcon’s football game … head-on. Never have I met a more kind, gentle, and freaking hysterical kid in my life. He has an old soul and is always ready to make you laugh. He’s got some killer dance moves and can beat you any video game. I’m creating this GoFundMe campaign to help the Kinney family with whatever they may need over the course of Johnny’s treatments,” said Marisa Jones on the GoFundme page.
As of Friday, March 19 the page has raised $33,295.00.
