BRECKSVILLE, Ohio - Rush for a Cause held its second annual Family Sports Blitz at Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School Saturday.
The event is a fundraiser and a chance to raise awareness and support for student athletes who suffer catastrophic injury.
Rush for a Cause was started in 2009 by Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School running back Matt Galland after a teammate was paralyzed during a tackle.
Participating in the event were nearly 3,800 student athletes on 160 youth football teams and 66 volleyball teams who held scrimmages throughout the day.
Last year, Rush for a Cause was able to help two northeast Ohio athletes, both who were paralyzed while playing football.
