Congratulations to the 30 teams and 500 people that came out to the 8th Annual Dodging Diabetes Charity Dodgeball Tournament on Sunday, March 10, 2013 to help us raise more than $25,000 for diabetes research.
That brings our 8 year total to more than $100,000!! The money we raised at this tournament will fund groundbreaking research at Joslin and JDRF to knock out diabetes for good.

Make sure to follow our Facebook Page and Twitter feed for more info about next year’s tournament. And we’d love if you could fill out our survey too.
This year we achieved Silver Certification from the Council for Responsible Sport. We’re proud that 91% of the waste from this year’s event was composted (thanks to The Compost Crew!) or recycled, that we supported local businesses, served local food, reduced our carbon footprint by planting trees, wore organic shirts, awarded recycled trophies and created an inclusive environment at the event. Our green page has the full deets.
See you next March! And as always, don’t forget the 5 Ds of Dodgeball:
- And Dodge!!!
