Welcome to TackleALZ NYC, the premiere women's flag football fundraiser to benefit Alzheimer's care and support! TackleALZ NYC is a volunteer-driven active event for women (as players) and men (as coaches) that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support CaringKind, New York City’s leading expert on Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving. The event is organized around a flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based upon the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes. (Anyone can join either team – there are blondes on BruCrew and brunettes on Blondetourage!)
We invite all interested participants to become part of the largest and most fun family in the city! Whether you identify as a member of the Blondetourage or the BruCrew, you'll make an impact on New Yorkers affected by Alzheimer's while creating new lasting friendships and memories.
What a TackleALZ season looks like:
You’ll meet for practice on a NYC soccer field for 8-10 Saturdays from March 7 – May 8th, leading up to the Big Game on (or around) May 15th.
You’ll be outfitted with gear such as training shirts, Game Day jerseys, hair ribbons, eye black – the works! Off the field, you’ll be working together with your teammates to raise funds for Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving. Competition and camaraderie – two great elements that make TackleALZ our signature athlete event of the year! In 2019, TackleALZ raised $217,000 for NYC families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Logistics for 2020:
Every Saturday from March 7 – May 15.
Line-ups are announced, photos taken. (Two weeks prior to Game Day.)
On or about May 15th. Exact date to be determined.
