We invite you to join us for a fun filled day and if you are a mom or a young lady, join us for our powderpuff flag football game!
The purpose of the Rumble for the Ribbon: A Community and Cancer Awareness Celebration is to provide a platform both educational and entertaining in a family atmosphere in collaboration with local grassroots programs to focus on promoting cancer screenings, honoring cancer survivors, and planning special pre-game events in partnership with the community stake holders. Beacuse we are a football and cheer orgnaization we wanted to do something a little different that centered around our organization’s interest. In line with the NFL, we will not only focus on breast cancer but colorectal and others as well.
