Picture it: Warriors, adorned with headbands and clad in bold colors, staring down their opponents in a gripping contest of athleticism. Each stormy combatant is armed with a vulcanized weapon, hurling the inflated shrapnel at one another while standing in a caged, concrete battlefield. The goal: to emerge victorious and be crowned champions after a well-fought battle royale.
Is this the Coliseum during the golden era of Rome? Well, not quite.
It’s the fourth annual We Are Alexander Dodgeball Tournament! This exhibition of modern-day gladiators takes place Thursday, May 4, at 3 p.m. on Washington Ave. in downtown St. Louis. Money raised stays local, going directly to the Lupus Foundation of America, Heartland Chapter.
How you can help:
This is where you come in. You can help fight this debilitating disease by:
- Signing up your agency with the hopes of basking in the spoils of dodgeball glory
- Buying a raffle ticket at the event
- Making a personal donation
Together we can help solve the cruel mystery of lupus. All it takes is throwing a ball at someone’s face and getting away it … and maybe shattering a few egos along the way.
