Play the game!

Start with an age-old rivalry, then throw in a football field and a worthy cause, and you’ve got Blondes vs. Brunettes (BvB), a flag football game played by 50 of the area’s most talented, driven and inspiring women in their 20’s and 30’s all fundraising for a common cause: to end Alzheimer’s disease.  The two teams will compete on Massachusetts soil for the first time June 1st at Boston University’s Nickerson Field.

More than 10 million Baby Boomers will develop Alzheimer’s in the coming years.  It is the 6th leading cause of death and a rising percentage of people are being diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in their 30’s and 40’s.

Since its inception in 2005, Blondes vs. Brunettes has raised more than $3,000,000 for the Alzheimer’s Association nationally.  Drawing on BvB’s success across the country in markets including New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas and Houston, AlzTogether, the young professionals group of the Alzheimer’s Association, Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter, is ecstatic to bring BvB to Boston this year.

Blondes, brunettes – or any hair color – sign up, fundraise and practice for a chance to be on the official team. Leading up to game day, teams will participate in a series of events to fundraise, socialize and increase awareness for Alzheimer’s disease.

To register to play or coach, visit www.bvbboston.org by Thursday, February 28th and join us at our Kick-Off Party on Thursday at Lir from 7-10pm.
