Alzheimer's Assoc. event to bring 'rivals' to field

Mar 23, 2018 08:19AM ● Published by Staff Writer

Friends and family of those suffering with Alzheimer’s disease will face off against one another - and raise funds to find a cure - in a friendly-but-fierce game of football. 

The event, the fourth annual Lafayette RivALZ flag football fundraiser, organizes teams around long-standing rivalries, blondes vs. brunettes. Team members must be over 21 years old, and teams are asked to raise at least $250. People who do not wish to play on a team may coach or serve as referees

Stationed in Ascension Episcopal School’s Sugar Mill Pond campus for 6 p.m. April 21, the event raises funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. 

In Louisiana, more than 85,000 people live with Alzheimer’s, and more than 5 million U.S. residents are affected. Two-thirds of those living with Alzheimer’s are women. 

The RivALZ fundraiser, which takes place in more than 50 cities, raises more than $9 million. The first three Lafayette installments have raised over $125,000.
