TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

It’s been likened to trying to swing at a marshmallow looming toward you. For charity, no less. This can be nothing other than the M.O.T. Big Ball Marathon. Now in its 14th year, The 2011 M.O.T. Big Ball Marathon is scheduled for 24 straight hours beginning Friday, Sept. 2nd at 6pm.

The goal of the Big Ball Marathon is to raise money to assist individuals, families in need, charities and organizations in the Middletown / Odessa / Townsend (M.O.T.) area and is committed to supporting and improving the lives of those in need in the M.O.T. community.

This goal is met each year by the help of volunteers, a great deal of community support, concessions, carnival games, entertainment and corporate sponsorship who, together, make the 24-hour Big Ball (softball) marathon on Labor Day weekend a huge success. This popular event is much more than 24 hours of softball, though. It is 24 hours of fun! Businesses, civic groups, neighborhoods, churches and friends make up the 50 teams who pay to play.

The Big Ball Marathon has raised almost $400,000 for local charities over its thirteen years, including a record $50,000 in 2008!

Don’t miss the opportunity to get involved in this unique event. For more information, to register a team or to sponsor a player, go to www.BigBall.org
