Successful benefit takes place for Ingleside family
By Bill Eaves
On Saturday, June 25, at the Ingleside VFW, a benefit was held for Joseph Avitia to raise money in order to cover medical costs incurred during a battle with testicular cancer. “The day after this tough workout, I felt a really weird pain, where you would think a sports hernia would be,” Joseph Avitia said. He is a competitive powerlifter, and a former member of the Ingleside High School Powerlifting team. Avitia explained he immediately knew something was wrong, but like many tough athletes, he took the “wait and see” approach.
