The countdown is on. 8 teams have taken on the fundraising and impending indoor boccia challenge – to help fuel the Canadian Boccia Team to international podiums. There are only 8 days left to either throw your hat in the ring (boccia court!) by signing up a team of up to 6, or donating online to support the Boccia Throwdown! or individual teams.
You can team-up with the Canadian Boccia Team three ways:
1. Share this blog post with your social media networks.
2. Form a team of up to 6 players and party with us on August 29 from 5-7pm at 1 Athletes Way Vancouver. Register here.
3. Donate to one of the teams below and help them chase top fundraiser glory, or to the event itself. Keep scrolling for details.
Apparently boccia team names allow for some serious creativity. We on the national team thought we had all of the boccia ball puns locked down and figured out! Think again. If you like one of these team names, or the people and businesses powering them, click and donate online – “Chimp them” – and get an online tax receipt automatically.
Each team has to raise $500 to compete. Eternal glory is up for grabs to the winner of the indoor boccia tournament, and the top fundraiser. Here are the competitors in order of entry.
