Published DateMEREDITH — On Sunday, March 17, the Lakes Region Flag Football League will be holding its first annual Flag Football Breast Cancer Fundraiser to benefit Stacey Dickinson of Meredith.
The event, "Pulling For Hope And A Cure" will be held from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on the Inter-Lakes High School turf field and will be held whether snow, rain or shine.
The turf field will be ready to play, as the field never freezes and once cleared of snow will be ready to go. The field will be cleared of snow for the event.
LRFFL is inviting all of our former players, current players (including Men's Summer League teams and Women's Spring League teams) to participate.
The league is also inviting all those who just want to give flag football a try to come out and have some fun and support Stacey and raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Anyone from age 4-and up can play flag football! NFL Flag Football is played 5-on-5 and is a non-contact sport.
Adults who wish to play will be asked to make a $10 donation and kids will be asked to make a $1 donation.
Those interested in playing can register at lrffl.com. For those who are bringing a team, only one person needs to register, and then inform the league who else will be playing.
The league asks all who will be playing to wear some pink & green in celebration of breast cancer awareness and St. Patrick's Day.
Concessions will be served; there will be a 50-50 raffle, and we will be raffling off gift certificates from local businesses.
