Hospitals taking part in tournament

The United Way’s mission is to advance the common good for local residents by building strong families, supporting independent seniors, and nurturing thriving children.

Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital and Sharpe Hospital, of Weston, Davis Medical Center, of Elkins, and United Hospital, of Clarksburg, are all dedicated to supporting the United Way in their county.

The four hospitals are joining forces and participating in a “Central West Virginia Hospital Challenge” to raise money for their respective United Way organizations in a Charity Softball Tournament

The tournament is planned for Saturday at Robert Bland Middle School Softball Field in Weston, beginning at 8 a.m. The first game pits the two Weston Hospitals, followed by the Davis vs. UHC matchup at 9:30 a.m.

Kevin Stalnaker, COO at SJMH, has been involved with United Way for years and is delighted by the interest from the four hospitals and all of their employees.

The rain date is Sunday.
