This Sunday, golfers at Wild Turkey Trace will not only be able to enjoy the game but also help children with disabilities.  The Anderson County golf course will be hosting a special golf scramble to help raise funds for the Challenger League of the Anderson County Little League.

Bart Lewis, coordinator for the Challenger League, explained that the league has been helping children with physical and mental disabilities play baseball for eight years. “The challenger league is a division that is setup to give kids that normally don’t have a chance to play baseball or any other sport an opportunity to be in a team environment,” Bart said. “The highlight of the day is playing baseball and being the star.”

All children with disabilities both in Anderson and surrounding counties can play in the league without any cost to parents.  Bart explained that the league has been blessed with many donations and charities throughout the years to help pay for all the uniforms and supplies.

However, this year with their equipment aging, they are looking to replace the eight year old equipment as well as upgrade their audio system to enhance the games for the children.  The golf scramble this Sunday, April 30th, will help raise funds to replace the old equipment, according to Bart.
