May 31, 2014 - University of Akron Stile Athletics Field House

To Benefit Greater East Ohio Area Alzheimer's Association

We are excited for the second year of Blondes vs. Brunettes Akron! This powder puff football game benefiting the Alzheimer's Association is taking place on May 31, 2014!!


Blondes vs. Brunettes has raised more than $5 million for the Alzheimer's Association since the inaugural game in 2005. Our inaugural game last year raised more than $11,000!


​This gridiron competition is divided based on the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes. While only one team will win the game, we are all champions working together to tackle Alzheimer's.


​Blondes vs. Brunettes is a volunteer driven event that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support the Alzheimer's Association. This organized flag football game is divided into two team, blondes and brunettes. (Note: Redheads are free agents, permitted to play on the team of their choice). Sign up to play, today!! View the practice schedule here.
