Save the date for Blondes vs. Brunettes on May 4 in Madison!


About the event
Two sides, one team. In its second year in Madison, Blondes vs. Brunettes is the only flag football game in Wisconsin that is volunteer-driven, bringing together young professionals to support the Alzheimer’s Association. Two participating teams are divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes.

Alzheimer’s disproportionately affects women in diagnosis and caregiver roles. An event created and played by women, Blondes vs. Brunettes sends a message of solidarity: We plan to meet this disease with energy and attitude. We are the generation that can provide both the fuel and spark in this fight.

Alzheimer’s does not choose sides. It does not keep score. It does not play fair. On the field we may be Blondes and Brunettes, but together we are united as one team in the fight against this deadly disease.


Who can get involved
Anyone can get involved, no matter your skill level, hair color or gender. Blondes vs. Brunettes Madison is recruiting players, cheerleaders, coaches and planning committee members. Redheads are free agents!

Supporters get involved for our grandparents, parents and ourselves. We play because unless we change the course of Alzheimer’s disease, it will continue to take a devastating toll on families.

Event history and where we are today
Blondes vs. Brunettes was established in 2005 by a group of young professional women in Washington, DC. 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 research and care.
 
Since its inception, the event has successfully branched out to 30+ cities, raising more than $3 million and bringing thousands of new supporters to the cause. In addition to Madison, a few of these cities include Austin, Buffalo, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles and New York.


Where the funds go
Funds raised from Blondes vs. Brunettes Madison will benefit the mission-fueled initiatives of the Alzheimer’s Association, South Central Wisconsin Chapter.
