History of the Event
Alzheimer's Association Blondes vs. Brunettes® was created in the fall of 2005 by a group of young professional women in Washington, D.C. The founders had a personal connection to Alzheimer’s disease and designed the event to raise awareness among their peers while also raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Since that inaugural game in Washington D.C., the event has successfully branched out to dozens of cities nationwide (now Cincinnati!), raising more than $2 million and bringing thousands of new supporters to the cause.
Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer-driven active event for women that that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support the Alzheimer’s Association. The event concept is organized around a flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes.
The funds raised through Blondes vs. Brunettes benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
