A charity helping kids with cancer is trying to bounce back from a robbery and is seeking help.
Someone broke into the storage facility belonging to "Basket of Hope" in June, stealing toys that were intended to go to help sick kids. The facility in Cross Lanes was not only burglarized, but also was trashed. The charity, which aims to comfort kids and their families dealing with cancer, was brought to the Charleston area by former NFL and Marshall player Chris Massey.
Massey and his charity are conducting a fundraiser Saturday to help replenish their supplies. The "Warrior Carry" will be held at Firebreather Fitness in St. Albans. Along with Crossfit workouts, there will also be a silent auction. The event runs from 9 a.m. to noon.
