Community Flag Football Game to Support those with Disabilities

January 10, 2010

Local educators, health care workers and public safety officials faced off in friendly games of flag football Saturday to benefit those with disabilities.

The Tackling Disabilities El Centro Regional Medical Center Football Challenge fundraiser welcomed scores of people to the Central Union High School football field for the games.

Marty Dineley, executive director of the El Centro Regional Medical Center Foundation, said the event is a great way to benefit those with disabilities in the Valley.

“The El Centro Regional Medical Center is here for the entire community — it’s a community hospital,” she said. “We like to give back to the community in every way we possibly can.”

The $5 entrance fee, as well as proceeds from purchases of event brochures and refreshments, benefited the Imperial Valley Center for Exceptional Children and the El Centro Regional Medical Center Foundation. The proceeds will help purchase special equipment for both organizations.

Men’s and women’s teams representing IVCEC, Pioneers Memorial Hospital in Brawley, El Centro Fire Department and El Centro Regional Medical Center played flag football on the field. Members of the community cheered the teams on.

IVCEC behavioral assistant Monica Buford played for the IVCEC Dirty Divas powder puff flag football team. She said the event was enjoyable.

“It’s fun,” she said. “I think it’s a good idea.”

Grace Verduzco of Pioneers Memorial Hospital played for the PMH powder puff team. She said it’s important to raise money through the fundraiser to benefit those with disabilities.

“I’m proud I’m helping children in need,” she said.

Moms, daughters play ball for cancer research

January 4, 2010

Pink will be plentiful at this week’s third annual Susan G. Komen Girls Flag Football Tournament.

The three-day event, which includes two days of competition and a Bigger and Better Family Fun Night, is a fund-raiser for Susan G. Komen For the Cure.

More than 30 flag football teams from Palm Beach County and a handful of teams in the “moms division” are expected to participate in the event, which will be held Jan. 6 and Jan. 9-10 at Acreage Community Park and Okeeheelee Park.

“What’s a better way to have a tournament mean something?” tournament director Chris Mathews said of the fund-raiser. “Everybody can win a trophy, but to have it mean something means more.

“You see the girls put their hearts and souls into it, because they dye their hair pink, they do the wristbands pink. It just seemed like a natural combination that the girls would play for something that will probably help benefit them one day.” –read full article here

The tournament is free and open to the public. For information, visit www.flagsforthecure.com
