The Second Annual Dodging Colon Cancer Dodgeball Tournament takes aim at raising awareness in the Idaho Falls community and surrounding areas about the disease.
The tournament will be held at the Idaho Falls Apple Athletic Club on Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16. On the 15 the tournament will start at 7 PM with round robin play to determine the tournament bracket for the next day. Play will end around 10 PM on the first day. The tournament bracket games start March 16 at 9 AM and will end around 3 PM.
There will be two divisions: co-ed and men. Prizes will be awarded to winners of the tournament as well as for the most creative outfits.
Entry into the tournament is $100 per team of six team members.
All proceeds go to education and outreach efforts to promote colon cancer screening throughout the community. Mountain View Hospital, Apple Athletic Club, and Eastern Idaho Public Health District, Alpha Graphics, and Kiwi Loco are sponsoring the event.
