About RivALZ: Alzheimer's Association RivALZ is a series of volunteer-driven flag football games that engage young professional women in events across the country. As part of the competition, teams are organized around rivalries to inspire fundraising, awareness and action in the fight against Alzheimer's and all other dementia. This national flag football fundraising program brings together passionate young professionals to raise funds and awareness for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

History of RivALZ: RivALZ began in the fall of 2005 as Blondes vs. Brunettes(r), a flag football event organized by a group of young professional women, in Washington, D.C. The founders of the event had personal connections to Alzheimer's and designed the event to drive awareness among a younger audience while raising funds for the Alzheimer's Association. Since the inaugural game in Washington, D.C. The event has grown to more than 50 cities, raising more than $18 million and bringing thousands of new supporters to the cause. In 2014, to accommodate nationwide growth, "Blondes vs. Brunettes" grew into "RivALZ," empowering participants to choose the rivalry around which to organize their teams. Today, local events are still organized around two opposing teams, such as east vs. west, Blondes vs Brunettes, or city vs. suburb, in the RivALZ spirit.
