The Macon Panther Basketball Travel Team fared very well in its first Youth Basketball Of America “YBOA” tournament posting a record of 4-1, winning the Championship Sunday, April 20, against the Falcon Flight from Hendersonville.

The boys went two and one on Saturday and two and 0 on Sunday. Special thanks to team sponsor “Gilliam’s Promise Foundation.”

On Saturday, April 14, Angel Medical Center’s Cardiac/Pulmonary Rehabilitation held the 2nd Macon Your Heart Beat 5K Walk/Run at the Little Tennessee Tassee Park. More than 175 participants came out and took part in either the one-mile walk/run or the 5K walk/run raising close to $8,500. The proceeds benefit those in the community who, without financial assistance, could not pay for rehab that is beneficial to a full recovery. While most insurance plans recognize and pay for 80 percent or more of the charges incurred by the program, many patients do not have full coverage, and sometimes don’t have coverage at all.
