Deadline to register is July 25

After much consideration, the We CARE Foundation is very pleased to announce that there will be a modified 2020 We CARE Foundation Softball Marathon this year on Aug. 15.

The games will be consolidated to one location, Legion Park in Hollidaysburg, where there are three fields and plenty of room for players to practice social distancing.

The We CARE Foundation is recruiting teams, and new this year, individuals can play.

As always, 100% of all funds raised will be directed to children and adults that live in and around Blair County.

In 2019, a total of $12,615 was raised through the event.

Teams are composed of 12 to 20 players. Each team is asked to raise a minimum registration fee of $450 for 12 players or $600 for 20 players to play in one three-hour softball game.

Players each receive a T-shirt. Teams can be of any ability level.

New in 2020, individual players can register for $30. For the $30 entrance fee, individual players will receive a T-shirt, an Ultimate Sub and beverages. The deadline to register is July 25.

Games start at 8 and 11 a.m., then 2, 5 and 8 p.m.

Volunteers to serve on the organizing committee and to assist during The We CARE Foundation Softball Marathon games are also needed.

The We CARE Foundation is assisting programs in Blair County that focus on therapy services for children between

the ages of 0 to 21 years old, including occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech and

language therapy.

The We CARE Foundation is also supporting adult programs that offer therapy services to patients with symptoms of stroke, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, brain injury and other neurological conditions.
