What has Battle for the Bridge meant to you?

We asked players, volunteers and sponsors We'd love to hear from you too! what Battle for the Bridge meant to them, these are just some of the great things we heard.

When I first got involved in the inaugural Battle for the Bridge I did it purely for the thrill of playing football one more time. Now that I’m playing in my fourth game I’ve come to see that this game is about something bigger then personal glory, it’s about community, brotherhood and standing shoulder to shoulder with players, volunteers, sponsors and our community to defeat Cystic Fibrosis. I’m proud to play a part.
Dave, WL Team Captain
I have been a proud sponsor of Battle for the Bridge for 2 years. At first I thought these guys we’re nuts to be putting on pads and playing a 60 minute game of full contact football. What I came to see was the passion and commitment the entire community put into this game, it’s inspiring. To know that my money will directly to research efforts to find and fund a cure for Cystic Fibrosis is just the icing on top.
Steve, Sponsor
I have been involved with Battle for the Bridge for four years. I am humbled, amazed and blessed to have so many supportive and enthusiastic players, volunteers and support from our community. This game can’t happen without their efforts and the support of the community at large. With the money raised from this game and other efforts I hope to see Cystic Fibrosis eliminated in my lifetime.
