RivALZ/Blondes vs. Brunettes®

The Alzheimer's Association RivALZ: Blondes vs. Brunettes Indianapolis is a volunteer-driven chapter event in the form of a flag football game for women, designed to bring young professional community leaders together to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association.



The two teams of women – divided to reflect the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes, attend practices and participate in a series of events leading up to game day to socialize and increase awareness for Alzheimer's disease. In addition, each player works to raise a minimum of $300, to benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

The 2017 event raised over $38,000!  The Blondes won this year's game 38-16, and were also the top fundraising team with more than $21,000 raised!  Thank you to our players, coaches, and fans for a great event!

The next event will be in the Spring/Summer of 2018, but the committee is active year-round. 

For questions about becoming a player, coach, committee member or supporter, please contact Laura Cavanagh or 317-587-2209.
