Why We Play

Blondes vs. Brunettes (BvB) is a volunteer-driven flag football game for women that brings together the passion and spirit of young community leaders to support the Alzheimer’s Association.

  • Almost two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer’s are women.
  • Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States.
  • More than 6 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease in 2021, including approximately 200,000 individuals younger than age 65.
  • Every 65 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s.
  • By 2050, the number of people with people age 65 and older with Alzheimer’s disease could reach 12.7 million, barring the development of a medical breakthrough to prevent or cure the disease.
