Dodgeball! A “smashing success!"

We're happy to report that we held our 2nd Annual Adult Dodgeball Tournament this past weekend on Sunday, June 3rd, at the Thorpe Tennis Court Complex and that we were able to raise over $7,000.00 for our unique magnet art and science programs.

With over 300 players and spectators, the Flagstaff community really put the FUN in FUNdraiser! The Sunrise Lion’s Club hosted a spectacular concession stand where they too were able to raise money for their Lions Give Sight program and more!

This year 24 teams competed (or tried to compete) for the coveted traveling golden dodgeball trophy. While the Proform X, Combine 360, and DeRosa PT teams gave it their best shot, it was More Cowbell who stole the show in more ways than one! Congratulations to all of the spirited teams who made this event one to remember (and for some, one they would like to forget).
