This Ages Old Rivalry Comes to a Head Saturday!

It s back!

The ages old rivalry of blondes vs. brunettes comes to a head this weekend at Harrison High School with a “flackle” (flag+tackle) football game!

This game is always a great time, but it’s also for a good cause!

RivALZ began in the fall of 2005 as Blondes vs. Brunettes®, a flag football event organized by a group of professional women, led by Sara Abbott, in Washington, D.C. Her sister, Kate Stukenberg, soon expanded the game to Texas. The founders of the event have a personal connection to Alzheimer’s and designed the event to drive awareness among a younger audience while raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Since the inaugural game in Washington, D.C., the event has grown to more than 40 cities, raising more than $5 million and bringing thousands of new supporters to the cause.

And the game is a BLAST to watch!
