Alzheimer’s is a disease that affects your memory, thinking, and behavior. A disease that people around the world continue to raise awareness for like here in Duluth.

An annual Wiffle Ball tournament also raises money for the association and will be held on Friday, July 7th through Sunday, July 9th. It will be a special one as this will be the finale of the tournament.

“It’s just gotten really big, which is a good thing, but it’s gotten too big for this field to continue on; and it wouldn’t be the same if we bought it anywhere else. We’re just happy with wrapping it up,” said founder and organizer Tom Johnson.

The tournament will be held at 3240 Poplar Road in Duluth Lakewood Township. The event includes a 10-team tournament, corn hole tournament, duck races, 50/50 drawings, and plenty of quality auction items! There will be food and beverages, with all proceeds going to the Alzheimer’s Association.

Over the past eight years, thousands and thousands of people have participated in the wiffle ball tournament and showed much love and support as the organizers like Leo Johnson say that they feel the love every time.

“They love it! They absolutely love it. I think it’s a great environment. We have a lot of fun and were doing it for a great cause which is even more important.”
