15th annual Will Fence for Food Tournament Generates 1,000 Pounds of Food for Layton Food Bank

This year’s 15th annual Will Fence for Food tournament generated over a 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food for the Open Doors food bank in Layton, Utah. We had 60 fencers donate food and cash in lieu of registration and event fees. We are so grateful for the willingness of fencers in our division to give back to the community. The decade and a half-old event was the brainchild of Robbie Malcolm, who fenced in Park City and started “Will Fence for Food” as a high school project. Malcolm then went on to fence for and graduated from Princeton. Wasatch Fencing with support from all the clubs in Utah and Idaho have been supporting the charity event ever since.

Congratulations Wasatch Fencing’s gold medalists Gabriel Carrier (Y12 foil and epee), Abby Whitesides (Y12 saber), Tatijana Stewart (senior epee), and Jonas Delisle (D3 Saber). Congratulations also to Zachary Kofroth earning his “C” in epee and Gavin Barth his “E” in epee. Wasatch Fencing had 19 medalists overall! Click here for all results.
