Some of you may or may not know about this amazing event Bosse Photo has been a part of for a few years now, either way, the Blondes vs Brunettes powderpuff flag football game is an event the whole Bosse Photo family holds near and dear. BvB benefits the Alzheimer's Association across the nation as it strives to tackle ALZ.
Our journey into BvB started 2 years ago, Kristina found a article about the event in a fitness magazine. We did a little research and found out that Columbus did in fact have the event. One thing I noticed was there weren't a lot of pictures, so I sent them an email. Next thing I know, I'm at a board meeting and being introduced to some amazing men and women. That first year was great and I'll never forget the awesome game at Columbus commons with its crazy overtimes!
Kristina fell in love after that first game. Our second year found us both being involved, myself as the photographer and Kristina as a player. The ladies and gents went from members of the group to friends of ours. We were at every board meeting, practice, and happy hour. There were so many moments where Kristina and I felt so proud to be part of a great organization. More than a few tears were shed and we laughed until our sides hurt. To know that we were had a small part to do with the nearly $30,000 dollars that was raised, was just amazing.
As this third year gets underway, I'm now not only the photographer, but the social media manager. Kristina is still working her behind off for Team Brunette. It's such an honor to get to be a large part of the event. We have been through our first training camp and first few practices and the ladies have already proven this year will be a competitive game.
While Kristina's and my personal connection to Alzheimer's is small, knowing that we having any impact against this horrible disease that affects more and more people every day is humbling. Alzheimer's affects over 5 million people in America and is the 6th leading cause of death. There is no cure and no treatment.
