Knock Out Malaria Dodgeball Tournament: Interested in participating in a Dodgeball tournament for a good cause?
Come out on Sunday November 22nd at the RSF Field House for Kappa Gamma Delta’s annual dodgeball tournament. All proceeds will be benefiting the Nothing But Nets campaign by the United Nations Foundation in our hopes reduce the incidence of malaria in countries and communities that are greatest affected by this infection.

Nothing But Nets is a grassroots campaign that was started to spread awareness of the malaria pandemic in Africa. This campaign encourages the public to donate just $10, which goes directly toward the purchase, distribution and education about the proper use of a long-lasting insecticide-treated bed net. Today, Nothing But Nets has sent over 2,824,000 nets to families in Africa. We greatly urge your organization to participate in our tournament by putting together a team of 6-12 people, although free agents are also encouraged to participate. Not only will your organization reap the benefits of knowing that you are benefiting a noble cause, but many local and corporate sponsors have generously donated prizes. Thus, for a small registration fee, your organization can join many others in helping provide education and primary healthcare services to less-privileged communities in Africa!
