Rivals Teams.jpg

Two Teams. One Game. One Mission.

RivALZ Columbus is an annual charity flag football game where two teams of women face off to inspire action, awareness and fundraising in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. All funds raised go directly to the research, support and efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association, Central Ohio Chapter. The Young Professional group affiliated with the Central Ohio Alzheimer’s Association, the Junior Committee, plans RivALZ as their signature fundraising initiative each year. 

The funds raised through RivALZ benefit the care, support and research efforts of the Central Ohio Alzheimer’s Association. The Alzheimer’s Association strives to:

• Help families across the country by continuing to provide and enhance programs focusing on education and support.

• Advance critical research studies into methods of treatment, prevention and ultimately, a cure.

• Speak up for the needs and rights of those facing Alzheimer’s through our public policy initiatives.

In our tenth year, RivALZ Columbus continues to engage the community, raising over $217,083 to date. Our dedicated players, coaches, and volunteers are working hard to continue this momentum, making our 2018 game bigger and better than ever. Want to cheer on the crowd? Donate to one of our players and you will receive admission to the game!
