The John P. Murray Community Care Clinic and Albemarle Parks and Recreation held its third year of the 24-hour softball marathon – the Around the Clock Classic – the weekend of June 1, 2018. Beginning at 6 pm on Friday, twelve local teams prepared for a weekend of games at Rock Creek Park to support these great causes. After six very wet games to kick off the tournament and more rain in the forecast, the tournament was called. Those first six hours were full of fun, fans, and delicious food.
Congratulations to Uwharrie Bank who took home the fundraising and most runs scored trophy. Many thanks to all the teams who participated and the hundreds of community members who contributed.
All funds raised through the tournament will be used to continue the excellent programming offered through Albemarle Parks and Recreation and to ensure working members of our community, who are uninsured, can have access to strong healthcare at no cost.
Save the date for the 2019 tournament: Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1.
