(Riverton, Wyo.) – Lander Fire Chief Eric Siwik and Riverton Assistant Chief Scott Walters today presented the proceeds from their benefit basketball game last month to the Tough Enough to Help Cancer Fund today. Accepting were Tough Enough’s Teresa Nirider and Orion Morris.

The proceeds totaled $5,143 from the game, won for the first time by the Riverton Firefighters. The game was held in Lander as the site rotates between communities. “I think we’ve raised just over $20,000 for the fund in the four year’s we’ve been playing this game,” Siwik said.
