Dodge For A Cause 2020: SHIFT Happens to Sponsor Annual Dodgeball Tournament
Are you ready to dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge? Students in 5th-12th grades, as well as families and/or community members, are invited to participate in the Annual Dodge For A Cause Dodgeball Tournament, sponsored by SHIFT Happens (Students Helping Impact Future Teens). The event is scheduled for Friday, March 6, 2020 (with a back-up date set for March 7, in case of inclement weather). Check-in starts at 5:30pm, with the “first throw” following at approximately 6:00pm. The event will be returning to Jeff Gym, located at the Webster City Middle School (1101 Des Moines Street) in Webster City. Teams of 8-10 members per team are welcome, and registration is $50 per team (that’s only $5 per player!).
There will be three (3) tournament brackets again this year; Middle School (5th-8th grades), High School (9th-12th grades), and a Community/Family Combo bracket. Any 5th-12th grade student in Hamilton County, as well as families, businesses, non-profit or civic groups, or community members are invited to pick their team, choose their theme, dress it up, and participate in this fun, substance-free event. Individuals may also support the cause by coming to the tournament, sponsoring a team, purchasing a t-shirt ($15 each, additional charge for plus sizes), or donating bracket/door prizes. Admission for spectators will be free-will-donation. The concession stand will be open, and be staffed by the After-Prom Moms. All funds raised from the dodgeball tourney & t-shirt sales will go toward the Revitalization of East Twin Park. Webster City Rotary will be partnering on the SHIFT Happens efforts again this year, as their March Civic Project!
An added perk returning this year is the option to challenge a team. Want to play against your rival on the court? Want to challenge another family, group, or business? We can do our best to make that happen. Send a “Dodgeball Throwdown Challenge” via Social Media or email by following the rules on our Facebook page.
This year the SHIFTers are raising funds to help revitalize the East Twin Park. All monies raised will be contributed to the account set-up through the Enhance Hamilton County Foundation. SHIFT Happens encourages the community (and surrounding area) to help rally for this great cause!
