Finally Putting Our Skills to Good Use
For more than a year now I’ve been playing on a very competitive kickball and dodgeball team called the Incrediballs. Involved in both the Reno and Sparks leagues, our team has ended its seasons placing anywhere from first to third place. While getting a T-shirt at the end of each season is great (no matter what place you get), the Incrediballs have always been striving for something more. Well we found it!
On Saturday, Feb. 20 we are playing in the 1st annual Dodging Diabetes Dodgeball Tournament, in support of the Northern Nevada Chapter of JDRF. Not only are we getting to do something we love, but we are doing it for a great cause.
Since working at RKPR and dating my boyfriend, Greg (who I happened to meet playing kickball) I have become very familiar with this non-profit organization and this disease that effects the lives of millions. As a pro-bono client of RKPR’s, the Northern Nevada Chapter of JDRF has become one of my favorite clients to help promote. In addition learning about Type 1 diabetes and its impact, I have also learned a great deal from Greg’s dad who has battled Type 1 diabetes since his early 20s.
You can bet that we, the Incrediballs, are going to give it our all on February 20 and will do what it takes to bring home the gold, in honor of the many families who are fighting against this deadly disease.
