April Fools' Day is celebrated every year on April 1 by playing practical jokes and spreading laughter. Whether you are the prankster or the pranked, the good news is that science has repeatedly shown that laughter does a body good. Laughing is a great form of stress relief. That makes April Fools' Day the perfect time for Sunrise of Central Florida's First Annual Dodgeball Tournament. Are you looking for a little more stress relief or looking to get back at a prankster? Either way, this tournament is for you! Expect the light-weight, but deadly accurate power balls to be flying on the 1st! Now this is not the dodgeball of your elementary school nightmares… or maybe it is. Sunrise’s unique fundraiser will feature the twenty-one dodgeball teams from Polk County (and the surrounding areas.)
The event will be held in Lakeland at the Kelly Recreational Complex from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. here is a $200 registration fee for teams of seven. All proceeds will benefit people with intellectual and physical disabilities served by Sunrise of Central Florida.
