Covering The Bases – Raising Funds For Horizon Field

chieftakesaplungeThe Acworth Police Department invites our community to participate in raising funds for Horizon Field.  These monies go toward the maintenance, upkeep, and cost of programs that the City of Acworth provides for Horizon Field.

Covering the Bases is an award winning program that raises awareness and funds to support the Horizon Field. The field is a synthetic surface which allows children with physical and cognitive disabilities to play organized sports. Covering the Bases is based on a partnership between the citizens of the community and the police department. Thus far, the police department has raised more than $150,000.00. 100% of all proceeds go directly to the field. The 24 hourwalk-a-thon includes a host of family activities that include, an outdoor movie, bounce houses, dunk tank, midnight kickball tournament, and much much more! We begin planning the event in early summer of each year.

We are excited to announce that the movie for our 8th annual Covering the Bases event is Big Hero 6! Plan on joining us September 11-12 starting at 6:00pm. Thank you to Day’s Chevrolet for their continued support! For more information on CTB, visit our website! Remember EVERY PENNY RAISED goes directly to the field!
