On Saturday April 21, 2018 United Way Oxford and our GenNEXT Committee hosted our 4th annual UDodge Tournament. 16 teams, and almost 160 players gathered at Cowan Park on Saturday morning for a dodgeball tournament that did so much more than just crown a new winner of the famous UDodge Wrench Trophy. Collectively these players raised over $18,000 to invest back into our community.
Proceeds from this event will be invested to create a brighter future for Oxford residents. Impact strategies are developed to help those living with limited income obtain basic needs and strengthen employment readiness; help those living with mental health obtain timely local service, reduce addictions, and empower people through peer to peer support programs; as well as nurture and mentor children and youth to provide opportunities as they grow.
We would like to thank CIBC, our event sponsor, who made the day possible as well as our amazing volunteers and each of the participants.
Also a big thank you to: Cowan Park, HAAS Enterprises, Boston Pizza Woodstock, Tim Hortons on Norwich Ave, SAF Holland Canada, Sysco, Scott’s No Frills, and the Dairy Farmers of Ontario for supporting UDodge 2018.
Stay tuned for details regarding UDodge 2019! Hope to see you all next year!
