Annual Blondes vs Brunettes Flag Football Game to Benefit Alzheimer’s Association

It’s the return of the budding football rivalry for a good cause, as the Alzheimer’s Association ‘Blondes vs Brunettes’ flag football game takes to the storied gridiron of El Paso High Friday night.

The two teams aim to increase awareness of Alzheimer’s disease among a new generation. Funds raised will benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association in El Paso.

Alzheimer’s Association RivALZ® is a volunteer-driven event that engages young professional women in friendly but fierce flag football games, not just here in the Borderland, but in friendly but fierce flag football games around the country.   

Since the inaugural game in Washington, D.C., the event has grown to more than 50 cities, raising more than $9 million and bringing thousands of new supporters to the cause. 

In the United States, more than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease, in Texas alone, there are 360,000 people living with Alzheimer’s. Nearly two-thirds of Americans living with Alzheimer’s are women.
