A special slo-pitch tournament is set to be held in Strathmore this weekend.

The Jess Bray Memorial Slo-Pitch Tournament pays tribute to Jeshua Bray who sadly passed away.

Bray was diagnosed with leukemia and made the difficult decision to have a stem-cell transplant.

"He fought for about a year after the transplant and ended up passing away from complications," says Tana Nault, who is the mother of Bray.

Nault told us her son was all about bringing people together.

"Whether it be through food, drinks, ball or all three of them combined. In his honour we did his Celebration of Life as a slo-pitch tournament and we made the decision to continue to do it every year," added Nault.

The Jess Bray Memorial Slo-Pitch Tournament will be hosted at the Strathmore Ag Grounds this weekend.Jess Bray.

The event will be hosted at the Strathmore Ag Grounds.

Nault says the event will be jam-packed with people, "We're expecting about 100 players. I would say probably with spectators and everything we're expecting anywhere from 150-175 people tomorrow and Sunday."

There are eight teams taking part in the fourth tournament.

"We raised $150,000 in the first five months through funds that were donated and the tournament. And then each year after that we've raised about $10,000," says Nault.

There are three organizations that the money will be donated to this year including the Jess Bray Memorial Fund at Thompson Rivers University where he went to law school.

The second is the Starlight Children's Foundation and the third is the Matt Little Foundation.
