The Kids That The GMG Farm Bar and Grille Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament Helped

Aria McElhenny writes-

Hi Joey, Frankie and Ryan,

As the weather starts to get chilly, here at Next Step we all start thinking about one thing: bikini & speedo dodgeball.

Thought you guys and the 2012 tournament participants might like a reminder of how their hard work raising funds at the tourney had an amazing impact on teens with cancer. The video below is from our summer youth conference for teen cancer survivors. These youth spent four days together learning how to manage their disease, laughing, riding a zip line and sharing their stories. The music in the video is an original song written by the youth and recorded at the conference.

Way to go dodge-ballers, you changed a lot of lives this year.

Thanks again from all of us at Next Step,

Aria McElhenny

Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Coverage on Boston TV stations

Joey,

I thought people might be interested in the clips of the Bikini Speedo Dodgeball Tournament that ran on Boston television stations.

Here is the segment that ran on WBZ Channel 4.

Here is the segment that ran on FOX 25 TV=

The FOX clip has a nice interview with Noah from The Farm Bar & Grille. But the best part is the impromptu dance party in the same clip by my friends Heather Fraelick and Gina Briguglio. Somebody call Dancing with the Stars!

I’m not even sure what to say except- Dodgeball Sunday Noon Pulled Pork Bikinis Speedos Action Fun Music Beer Charity Farm Bar & Grille–Any Questions?

Just got this video from an anonymous source.   Looks like they want in…

This is the letter they dropped off with it:

“Me and my boy gonna enter that competition bikini underwear thing.  We don’t know what it is but we be dodgen stuff all the time (snowballs, bottles, bullets, busted women that are all up on us).    We’re called “Team Deralick Our Motha%&$!!@$% Dodgeballs” it’s been our street/team name for years and years.  It’s only the 2 of us but we are good and don’t need any more people…we also can’t find anybody that is looking for teammates.  We’ll put an ad on craigslist if we gotta.  Otherwise the two of us are real real good.  We are ready, our uniforms are what you see – it’s normally how we roll too.  How much we win if we win?”


-See you on the court.
