Thank you for making the 10th Annual Dodging Diabetes Charity Dodgeball Tournament on Sunday, March 22, 2015 a total success! Thanks to our entire community of players, volunteers, supporters and sponsors, we raised more than $15,000 this year, bringing our 10 year total to more than $130,000 donated to JDRF and the Joslin Diabetes Center.
On Sunday, March, 22, 2015, we welcomed 21 teams to battle it out for the winning prize – their team picture on the front of a Wheaties box of cereal. Big congrats to Team CapTech for winning the Average Joes League title and to Dinosaur Ice Machine for winning the Vegas League title. Congratulations to Bella’s Bunch for winning the fundraising prize by collecting the most money for charity. And a big shout out to the Washington Elks Lodge teams for winning the Rock Star Spirit Award for their fun purple uniforms, great attitudes and impressive fundraising skills. And finally, big congrats to Tim Wells and his 5 year old dodgeball-in-training pal Daniel for winning the Chuck Pacholkiw Last Man Standing award.
If you haven’t already, there is still time to donate to knock out diabetes for good. There is so much promising research out there, let’s help get this research out of the labs and into the hands of the people who need it now!
Make sure to check out the fabulous pictures of the tournament by our very own Dwayne Renard Photography and buy your team shot to remember the day.
And as always, don’t forget the 5 Ds of Dodgeball:
- And Dodge!!!
