DURHAM, N.H. -- The Community Service and Leadership Program at the University of New Hampshire’s Thompson School of Applied Science is organizing a whiffleball tournament to raise money for two local groups that help children in difficult situations – On Belay and the HUB Family Resource Center.

Get your friends together to form a team and come play whiffleball Saturday, April 16, at the UNH Whittemore Center. The fee for teams to play is $200, and the goal is to get 24 teams signed up. It promises to be a fun day for a good cause. To register or for more information contact Tim Barretto at 603-862-2796.

On Belay was created about two years ago to help children who have family members diagnosed with cancer.

For the HUB Family Resource Center the UNH Community and Leadership Program is specifically supporting the organization’s production of the play "No More Secrets," which helps children dealing with unwanted sexual attention or inappropriate touching.
