Dodging for DKR
Dodging for DKR is the newest Texas Royals tradition! This annual on-campus dodgeball tournament raises money for the DKR Research Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease.
The First-Annual Dodging for DKR in the Spring of 2015 had 18 teams signed up to take part in our tournament and helped us raise $1,303 for the fund! The Second-Annual in Spring 2016 brought 27 teams, and a total of $2,021.24 for the fund. This past Spring of 2018, we raised a total of $3,382.43! Thank you to all who came out and helped us surpass our goal and major thanks to our sponsors who made our event even more fun!
Texas Royals is excited to start planning the next Dodging for DKR and keep increasing our annual goal. It’s helped us raise awareness among students while maintaining a fun event that our student body looks forward to attending. Interested in sponsoring our event? Email us!
