The 2018 New York Giant’s Snow Bowl raised nearly $600,000 for our athletes. The 3 day, 6-6 flag football tournament is a unique fundraising event that always draws a great number of people throughout the weekend. This year was no different as 138 teams competed at MetLife Stadium.
The action kicked off Friday, March 23rd, as 42 teams took to MetLife stadium. Of those 42 teams, nearly all of them were New Jersey Law Enforcement and local firefighters. We were also lucky enough to have 3 New York Giants players stop by, greet our participants, and sign some autographs.

Day 2 featured 45 teams, made up of two recreation divisions, a competitive division, and the always exciting 40 & Older division. The 40 & Older Division featured the event’s top fundraisers, The Shark Finns. They raised over $27,000 this year in support of our athletes.
