Back in the days of elementary school when you were forced to play the game of dodgeball--perhaps to the sadistic delight of your burned-out gym teacher--it may have felt like it was all for nothing. Boise Parks and Recreation's Second Annual Charity Dodgeball Tournament is for a lot. The winning team gets to pick a Parks and Rec program to benefit from the proceeds, including youth scholarships, reasonable daycare in play camps, or activities for people with disabilities.
Teams need a minimum of six people, 18 or older, and registration costs $100. Last year, 120 people turned out and the Parks and Rec program coordinator said the air was thick with competition, raising $1,200 to benefit activities for disabled people.
Deadline to sign up is Friday, July 11.
