Why?

Last year 20 teams joined us to compete on the dodgeball court, all in the name of charity. It was a blast! The Force Pushers brought home the Octotrophy, but the real champions are those who received some of the $62,000 we raised last year!

We're headed back to the SoMa Rec Center, but bringing more awesome this year! The buy-in to enter is $3,000, and all funds will be split among the charities.

What?

GitHub employees and a number of victims from other teams participate in an epic Dodgeball tournament. Each team that is entered donates at least $3000 to the charity pot. At the end, all of the donations will be split between 4 pre-choosen charities. In the process, thousands are entertained.

How?

We've teamed up with the awesome folks from the World Dodgeball Society, again. They'll be keeping score and refereeing the games. We'll be using their rules for our tournament: 2013 tournament rules. Teams will need 10 players on court during gameplay, but can have up to 15 members per team to allow for player substitutions.

Who?

We will all be playing for four amazing local charities:

Streetside Stories Cultivates young people's voices to develop literacy and arts skills, fosters educational equity, values diversity, and builds community.
Second Harvest Food Bank Mobilizes individuals, companies, and community partners to connect people to the nutritious food they need.
Family House Provides housing and support for low-income families of children with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
Year Up Inspiring students to pursue careers in science and technology.
