Football coaches raising money for Special Olympics Tennessee

LEBANON, Tenn. – Cumberland football coaches are taking part in the 2019 Music City Blitz to raise money for Special Olympics on March 30 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

Assistant coach Broc Loveless is spearheading the effort to raise $1,500 for Special Olympics Tennessee through this 5-on-5 adult flag football event. Interested parties may donate to the Cumberland team at https://www.classy.org/team/199069.

Divisions are available in Competitive (Top Gun), Recreational, Co-ed, 35 and Over and Battle of the Badges. Teams are allowed up to 15 players; all must be 18 years of age or older to participate. Field size is 25 yards x 70 yards with each team guaranteed three games on the field at Nissan Stadium.

All proceeds raised by flag football teams benefit Special Olympics Tennessee athletes and help foster their mission:
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
