Safe Passage Hopes To Swing Their Way Into History

June 2, 2014

Community members are invited to join a world record attempt on Friday in Brookville. Safe Passage has organized a wiffle ball game with the goal of making it the longest played ever.

A group from Oregon currently holds the Guinness World Record for the longest wiffle ball game at 25 hours, 39 minutes and 33 seconds.

Safe Passage and a group of volunteers hope to exceed the record by playing in a 36-hour-wiffle ball game.

During the event, the fight against domestic violence will be front and center. Safe Passage is a not-for-profit agency serving domestic violence victims in Southeastern Indiana. Event participants will be collecting pledges and donations during the game with all proceeds going to the agency to help local victims.

“Services to victims of domestic violence through Safe Passage are at an all-time high,” said Jane Yorn, Safe Passage, Inc. Executive Director. “Events such as this wiffle ball tournament provide awareness about our life-saving resources, as well as critical funding for the comprehensive services we provide. This event is a wonderful example of community leadership and support behind an important need.”

The charity event is also getting support from State Representative Jud McMillin (R-Brookville)

“I am excited to take part in this event to support Safe Passage, Inc.,” said Rep. McMillin. “This is a fun way to help them continue doing great work for our community. The services they provide to victims of domestic violence are invaluable to so many Hoosier families, and I encourage everyone to come out and support this great organization.”

The world record attempt game will be played at 10172 Resevoir Rd. in Brookville, which is near the Brook Hill Golf Course. It begins at Friday at 7:00 a.m.
