“… It was a great day and a really good turnout. It gave RISEabove the chance to get out of our norm a little and still find a way to make a positive impact on our community. The proceeds raised will go towards the fields at Stella Moore ball field, where we will coordinate with the youth league and find out where those funds can best be used.”
