Welcome to TackleALZ NYC, the premiere women's flag football fundraiser to benefit Alzheimer's care and support! TackleALZ NYC is a volunteer-driven active event for women (as players) and men (as coaches) that brings the passion and spirit of young community leaders together to support CaringKind, New York City’s leading expert on Alzheimer’s and dementia caregiving. The event is organized around a flag football game in which the two participating teams are divided based upon the age-old rivalry between blondes and brunettes.
We invite all interested participants to become part of the largest and most fun "family" in the city! Whether you identify as a member of the Blondetourage or the BruCrew, you'll make an impact on New Yorkers affected by Alzheimer's while creating new lasting friendships and memories.
