Georgia Southern KA Participates in Annual Memorial Baseball Tournament

Delta Theta_Fireball 40 TournamentThe Delta Theta Chapter at Georgia Southern participated in the 4th Annual Fireball 40 Baseball Tournament on Saturday, August 27, 2016. The tournament is held in honor of Cory Wilson (Delta Theta–Georgia Southern ’11) who passed away on January 17, 2013 as a result of a fatal heart arrhythmia. Regrettably, there was not an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) available to treat Cory at the time he needed it the most.

Cory’s parents Kenny and Lisa Wilson have made it their mission to educate and install AED defibrillators anywhere they can, including the KA house and all over the campus of Georgia Southern. The Fireball 40 Tournament raises money to install AEDs in numerous facilities throughout the Savannah community, and it also commemorates the life of Cory Wilson.
