Join us Saturday September 19th, as we combine our sense of philanthropy with our knack for backyard competition in the 1st annual Battle of the Bags!

Funds raised will support Anne Ackerman’s 2015 New York City Marathon entry in honor of her brother-in-law Paul Kisinger who was diagnosed with Stage 4 glioblastoma in February.

All proceeds will be donated in Paul’s honor to Fred’s Team, an organization established to honor the legacy of Fred Lebow, co-founder of the New York City Marathon who died of brain cancer in 1994. Fred’s team is an athletic fundraising program dedicated to bringing us closer to a world without cancer.

Come support Anne, Paul, and Fred’s team all while demonstrating your prowess for backyard bag domination! The winner will receive bragging rights redeemable at all barbecue parties in the upper Midwest in addition to a grand prize. Prizes (but no bragging rights) for 2nd and 3rd place teams will be awarded as well.

Registration deadline is September 12th, 2015.
