TAZEWELL (WVVA) – Registration for the first annual TJ Rasnick Memorial Golf Tournament is open.

Mother, Jill Rasnick organized this golf tournament in memory of her son to raise funds for the new locker room at the James C. Ramey, Sr. Athletic Training Facility in Tazewell.

The locker room will be named after TJ.

TJ was considered a star athlete for the class of 2009 at Tazewell High School. He was diagnosis with synovial sarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer in 2008.
