Dodging balls for veterans

A couple of weeks ago, FisherServes held a charity dodge ball tournament benefiting Honor Flight Columbus, an organization that honors senior veterans throughout the United States. In a throwback to the playground days, Fisher graduate students from all programs formed teams of six and prepared to practice the five D’s of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge! Myself, Ashley, and Amanda from the MHRM program teamed up with Simon, Casey, and Scott from the SMF program for the Friday afternoon tournament.

Twelve teams battled to win best two out of three matches through round robin style play before heading in to playoff brackets. This design guaranteed that everyone got to play a solid number of matches regardless of wins and losses- which our team certainly appreciated. Admittedly, our team was not the best on the court. But we may have been the best dressed!

Afterwards all the participants headed out to Zeno’s, who also donated a portion of the night’s sales to Honor Flight Columbus. It was a great opportunity for students from all programs to hang out, mingle, and get to know each other a little more after the friendly competition.

The event raised almost $600 for Honor Flight Columbus and added bonus? It was an absolute blast! It did not truly matter whether your team won or lost, it was just a ton of fun to get out there and play.
