Blondes vs. Brunettes Columbus

 

Welcome to Blondes vs. Brunettes Columbus, where women united in the fight against Alzheimer's disease divide into Team Blondes and Team Brunettes, a flag football game to inspire fundraising, awareness and action.  The Young Professional group affiliated with the Central Ohio Alzheimer's Association, the Junior Committee, plans Blondes vs. Brunettes as their signature fundraising initiative each year. 

The funds raised through BVB benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Central Ohio Alzheimer’s Association. The Alzheimer's Association strives to:

  • Help families across the country by continuing to provide and enhance programs focusing on education and support.
  • Advance critical research studies into methods of treatment, prevention and ultimately, a cure.
  • Speak up for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s through our public policy initiatives.

In our eighth year, BVB Columbus continues to engage the community, raising over $148,056 to date. We are looking for dedicated players, coaches, and volunteers to continue this momentum, making our 2017 game bigger and better than ever. Want to cheer on the crowd? Donate to one of our players and you will receive admission to the game! 

Take the first step today by registering to play or volunteer!

 

 

We are quickly approaching the the 2017 season. Please join us for our monthly meetings, the third Wednesday at 7PM at the Alzheimer's Association to learn more about each committee and join one yourself! See the committee descriptions here. We are looking for talented, driven individuals to help make 2017 the biggest year yet!
