2nd Annual Bigger Than Footbal
F.I.T along with Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Police, Tempe Fire, and Phoenix Union High School held our annual Bigger Than Football + Big Man Challenge powered by Nike 11-On. The day started with our Healing Starts Here forum with a mental health and suicide prevention presentation and college preparedness with a representative from the NCAA; we also had our very own Officer Jan Rollon present on the importance of community interaction and with Phoenix PD. We also had a speaker from Tempe Fire talk about life after football.
This day allowed the student-athletes of Phoenix Union High School to come out and display their skills against each other and provide coaches the opportunity to identify areas of improvement. These schools showed up and showed out!
A special congratulations is in order for Cesar Chavez Champions for taking both the Big Man Challenge for the second time, back-to-back AND for also bringing home the Nike 11-On, 7-on-7 Trophy.
As always we appreciate each and every one of our volunteers who dedicated 4+ hours out of their day to make this event a success. We absolutely can not wait for the next Bigger Than Football event this upcoming August.
Again a huge thank you to the Arizona Cardinals and Nike for their continued support of our community.
