SMITHSBURG, MD - Hundreds showed their generosity as they turned out for a fundraiser at Smithsburg High School.
"Mitchell's Challenge" was held in honor of Mitchell Akers, a Washington County youth who died last year after being injured in an accident.
Shortly after his death a scholarship fund was established in his name.
Volunteer teams selected creative names as they competed in volleyball and dodge ball tournaments.
Duck Team 6 were the champions of the Dodge ball tournament. Duck Team 6 also won the most unique uniform prize, and For The Cause won the volleyball tournament.
