7th Annual Covering the Bases
This summer the Acworth Police Department and the Acworth Horizon League have been preparing for the upcoming Covering The Bases Fundraiser. The event will kick off Friday, September 5 at 7:00 p.m. and continue over the next 24 hours, concluding at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 6. This fundraising event helps support the Horizon Field athletics and programming. “Covering the Bases” was initially started to help raise the needed funds to build a synthetic rubberized ball field where children with all types of disabilities could participate in recreational sports. Monies raised also helped to build a handicap accessible playground, as well as a handicap accessible concession stand. This fundraiser has since helped maintain the field, equipment, and create new programs; such as a kickball league, soccer clinics, adult baseball leagues and new this year, adaptive tennis.
An itinerary is being developed at this time to maximize fun for all. This is a fun filled event with activities for everyone! This is a 100% volunteer event and every dollar raised goes back into the Horizon programs. So far, Covering the Bases has raised over $100,000.00 dollars to help support the Horizon League. Come out and show your support for this amazing league in Acworth!
