...ever! We just had the Huck Cancer Ultimate Frisbee tournament and post-party yesterday and it was AMAZING! Everyone managed to raise an astounding amount of money to fight cancer - over $40,000! The sun dance worked incredibly well and the weather was perfect. Everyone played with the typical Spirit of the Game, and there was a broad range of skill levels from beginners to some of the best players around. The post-game party was also amazing, and brought in a lot of people who weren't able to play earlier. It also gave me a chance to chat with everyone, and once again I felt incredibly lucky to have such wonderful people in my life.
The tournament and post-game party were incredibly well run and organized. I say this with zero ego because, in fact, it was an amazing crew of friends who actually pulled this whole thing together, and I want to give them all the credit they deserve, and then some. In particular, my friends Ali and Renata spent an amazing amount of time setting up this event, and their organizational skills are truly impressive. But there were several other key helpers, and while I hope I don't miss anyone, I want to give them all (somewhat anonymous) credit. You'll know who they are.....
(And the order is relatively random)
The "Kornman" Cam
The "Ultimate" Joe
The "Sexy Librarian"
I also want to thank all of the people who came by as volunteers to help run the tournament! Seriously, it was extremely helpful and much appreciated. Now let's keep the momentum going and spread the word for next year! Imagine if an event like this were to spread across the country...we might finally be able to truly "huck" cancer for good.
