Children with cancer got some special motivation from a group of Navy SEALs recently at a Watertown rock climbing gym.

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute brought the patients together with some of the United States military’s most elite troop in Watertown recently. WBUR reported on the event, where a SEAL who lost his legs in Afghanistan taught a 10-year-old cancer patient to climb the walls at Central Rock Gym. (click here to see the article).

The gym at 74 Acton St. will host some of the best climbers this weekend at the Ring of Fire finals. Professional and amateur climbers will compete in the event which begins Friday, May 2 at 7 p.m., and continues Saturday, May 3 at 9 a.m. and continuing all day.
