2018 Dodgeball tournament to support three charitable causes

The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Committee is sponsoring its 11th annual Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Championships on April 6 at 7 p.m. at Dublin Scioto.

The 24 members of Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley’s Student Advisory Committee have chosen this year’s charitable causes that will receive 100% of the tournament proceeds.

Dublin Bridges
Dublin Bridges is a new organization dedicated to rapidly filling needs posted online by members of our Dublin City Schools community. Dublin Bridges is a 501c3, charitable organization that provides a gateway for kindness within our community. Advocates identify unmet needs of Dublin residents and generous members of the community fill those needs. Community members can ‘Join the Bridge’ today to start spreading kindness by visiting DublinBridges.org.

3rd & Goal Foundation
Founded by Dublin City Schools alum and former Notre Dame and NFL Quarterback Brady Quinn, the 3rd & Goal Foundation was established to make a difference in the lives of veterans. Brady and his wife Alicia are committed to honoring our nation’s heroes through their work with the 3rd & Goal Foundation. 3rd & Goal assists veterans facing homelessness and veterans requiring home improvements in order to make their lives more accessible.

Hurricane Relief for Puerto Rico
Last September, the island of Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Several months later, Puerto Rican residents are still struggling with basic necessities as they rebuild their homes. Dr. Hoadley’s students are committed to donating a portion of the tournament proceeds to an organization within Puerto Rico that continues to lead relief efforts.

A portion of the funds will also benefit the Memorial Scholarship Funds of Lyndsey Rice and Kyle Colello, two Dublin Scioto students who died tragically in November of 2009.

“Our annual dodgeball tournament has become a unifying community event, raising more than $125,000 since its inception,” said Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley. “The students on my committee were extremely thoughtful as they discussed this year’s possible beneficiaries, ultimately landing on these extremely worthy organizations. We hope our entire community will join us on April 6.”

Though the entrance fee is $25 per team, the Central Office/Board of Education team will be donating more to this year’s causes. The Central Office/Board team challenges all adult staff teams to also donate beyond the $25 entrance fee to support these causes.

Teams consist of 6-10 players, with six players per team on the court at one time. The winning teams will be awarded the Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Championship trophy that currently resides at the schools of last year’s champions.

We will again have student and adult divisions of the tournament. Student teams will be selected at the school building level.

If your adult team would like to compete on April 6, please RSVP to info@dublinschools.net no later than Friday, March 23.

Admission to the tournament is $5 and 100% of all proceeds go to this year’s beneficiaries.
