The annual Wilenchik Walk for Life brought out an estimated 400 hundred people – and the sun for a while – on Saturday, March 7 to raise funds for cancer research.
The event brought together teams, groups and individuals, many of whom have been touched in some way by cancer – to celebrate life and fight cancer on a spring Saturday morning.
Money raised from the event – named after former Schertz City Councilmember Tony Wilenchik who was taken by cancer – goes to the UT Medicine’s Cancer Therapy & Research Center (CTRC). The 5K Walk and Run is hosted by the City of Schertz and HEB.

On 03/05/2015 around 8AM, Officer Molleda responded to the 12400 block of Schaefer Rd, Bexar County, in reference to a runaway/missing child. It was learned that the child who was identified as Anthony Sosa had left his residence (10605 Hillbrook) after being involved in a argument with his parents. His parents last saw him walking down Hillbrook towards Schafer Rd in his pajamas and barefoot. The parents lost sight of him and reported the incident to Bexar County authorities.
Due to the age of the child, inclement weather and lack of warm clothing a multi agency search effort was organized and deployed.
After 18 plus hours of searching at 02:52 hrs, Anthony appeared from the back of his residence near the command post. He appeared to be in good health. He was immediately seen by his family and evaluated by paramedics inside the command center. Anthony was then transported to Northeast Methodist Hospital to be evaluated.
It was learned from Anthony that he was underneath the next door neighbors trailer the entire time (10615 Hillbrook). The undercarriage of the trailer was examined and tell-tale signs validated Anthony’s statement. His footprints were present where the skirt of the trailer was damaged and there was a rip in the plastic containing insulation on the bottom of the floor decking underneath the trailer. It appears that Anthony may have been up in the insulation.
