SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC-TV) - Patrice Keeling and Brian Spurlin are friends that share a common bond: they both lost parents to cancer. Now, they have taken a familiar game and turned it into a way to fight the deadly disease.
"We just started playing the game cornhole," Spurlin said. "It's just a bean bag toss game. Then, we decided why not make some cornhole boards? My mother-in-law makes the bags for us."
That was the beginning of 'Cornhole 4 the Cure,' which in just six weeks has developed into a website and weekly tournament. Games are held every Wednesday night at the Boiling Point restaurant in Southaven.
