Dancers take over MCU Field to raise money and awareness for a Dyker Heights girl battling a debilitating illness. Julia Bruzzese was an active twelve-year-old, a dancer herself, until last year when she contracted Lyme disease and lost the ability to move her legs. The Brooklyn community rallied around her after Pope Francis blessed her last September. Currents Correspondent reports from the field as Julia throws out the first pitch for the Cyclones.
