RACERS INVITE COMMUNITY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY

AKRON, Ohio -- On Saturday, October 22, Firestone Stadium will serve as one of the sites for The University of Akron’s “Make a Difference Day.” Student volunteers and Akron Racers staff members will take part in beautifying Firestone Stadium.

In addition, the women’s professional softball team is inviting any interested community members to help “Make a Difference” starting at 9 a.m. Volunteers will be asked to join University of Akron students and Racers’ staff members in beautifying Firestone Stadium in true DIY fashion with painting of hand rails, the concourse and other various tasks around Firestone Stadium.

"We are excited to have been selected to participate in The University of Akron's “Make a Difference Day,” said Racers President/GM Joey Arrietta. Firestone Stadium is like home to us, and having a little help around the "house" is so greatly appreciated. The Racers, our fans, teams and visitors to Firestone Stadium, thank you all so very much for your help."

Built in 1925 and located at 1575 Firestone Parkway in Akron, Ohio, Firestone Stadium is one of the oldest landmarks in Akron, supporting over 85 years of softball, baseball and various other entertainment events. Home to the Akron Racers since 1999, the stadium and team celebrated a National Pro Fastpitch World Championship in 2005.

Make a Difference Day at Firestone Stadium will begin at 9 a.m. on Oct 22, and end at approximately 1 p.m. Firestone Stadium is located at 1575 Firestone Parkway in Akron, Ohio.
