'Love for Lungs' Tennis Tournament

BETHANY BEACH, De. – The ‘Love for Lungs’ tennis tournament, founded by Worcester Prep junior Abigail Plylar, is gearing up for its fourth year in Bethany Beach.

Plylar began the tournament following the passing of her grandfather back in 2015 due to pulmonary fibrosis. The charity event has gone onto raise over $110,000 dollars in its first three years; all of which is donated to the University of Maryland Lung Rescue Unit to help support lung research.

47 ABC Sports sat down with Plylar to discuss the growth of the tournament and what makes this event so unique.
