The event is free to the public, and the following have been scheduled:

• 1 p.m.: A One Mile Matters 1K walk.

Raffle tickets are on sale for $20 each for a chance to win a free three-year lease of a 2013 Chrysler 200. The winner will choose the color of the new car, which comes with GPS, satellite radio, road assistance and leather interior. The winner will be drawn Sept. 8 at Austintown Township Park’s Saving Second Base Softball Tournament. However, if there are not enough tickets sold to benefit the foundations after paying for the car, it becomes a 50-50 raffle instead.
