The Longest Day
January 13, 2018
Worthington Kilbourne vs. Fort Recovery
On Saturday January 13th, Fort Recovery High School will host Worthington Kilbourne High School in boys’ basketball. Kilbourne is coached by Tom Souder. Tom is the son of former Fort Recovery Indians boys’ basketball coach, Al Souder, who won the schools 1st OHSAA State Championship in 1970-1971. Coach Souder has been battling Alzheimer’s and both schools will be playing for more than just a victory Saturday night. The two schools and communities will join together for an Alzheimer’s benefit called The Longest Day.
The Longest Day is all about love. Love for all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. On Saturday, January 13th team up with the Alzheimer’s Association, Fort Recovery Schools and Worthington Kilbourne Schools for a great cause and enjoy the sport that has meant so much to the Souder family while also helping end Alzheimer’s. Together, we will raise funds and awareness for care and support while advancing research toward the first survivor of Alzheimer’s.
Admission at the boys basketball game will be free of charge. However, donations will be accepted at the gate in honor of Al Souder and the Souder family’s “Longest Day Benefit”. In addition to the Alzheimer’s benefit, we will be honoring Al Souder in between the JV and Varsity basketball games.
