A small community came together in a big way to celebrate the lives of two young people from who passed away this month.

Members of the Ellsworth Fire Department organized the softball tournament benefit for 16-year-old Danielle Grim and 21-year-old Dylan Crump.

Grim passed away after a tough battle with bone cancer, and Crump passed away last weekend in a car accident.

Area fire departments including Struthers, Sebring, and Craig Beach organized teams as well as friends and family members of the victims.

Grim attended Western Reserve and Crump graduated from the school.

“Our fire department is really small. Our community is really small, we really like to reach out to the community and we do whatever we can to help,” said organizer Marissa Hartman.

“I can’t thank everybody for just everything, all of these kids are friends and family. This whole time has been a beautiful tribute to him,” added Crump’s mother, Mary Crump.

A medical helicopter also landed as part of the event. All proceeds will be split between the two families.
