Now to change gears a bit…
Two years ago, a group of Cleveland young professionals came together to fight Alzheimer’s disease with football.
The annual BvBCLE flag football game celebrates the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes. However, the question in this game isn’t who has more fun, but who plays harder: the Blonde Bombshells or Blazin’ Brunettes?
I attended Cleveland’s first Blondes vs. Brunettes game in 2012 and was floored by the players’ enthusiasm — not just for the game, but also for raising awareness and money for the Cleveland chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.
That first year raised $41,253, which went to support Alzheimer’s research and the free programs helping 56,000+ people affected in Northeast Ohio. To date, Blondes vs. Brunettes Cleveland Flag Football has raised more than $80,000 and is excited to make the 3rd annual event even bigger.
BvBCLE ’14 will be held on Saturday, June 7 at 11 a.m. on Cleveland State University’s Krenzler Field.
Although June may seem far away, Cleveland’s Blondes vs. Brunettes league has already been busy preparing. And no wonder, this year’s fundraising goal is a staggering $51,000.
Player registration just opened this week. Depending on your hair color, women can now register for Team Blonde or Team Brunette. Redheads are free agents and can choose either team.
Although ladies-only play, anyone can coach, join a committee or make a donation to BvBCLE. In fact, your donation gets you a ticket to the game.
