Florida Gators and Shands Hospitals Team Up For 3rd Charity Event

The Florida Gators football team is holding its third annual Gator Charity Challenge this Friday, July 30 at 7pm. The challenge consists of the 2010 Gator team taking on each other in a series of strength competitions. The fun will take place at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium and it is open to the public. If you plan on going, it is free and make sure that you enter through Gates 1-4 on the west concourse. Gates will open as soon as 6pm.

Last year roughly 2,500 Florida Gator fans showed up to watch the team beat up on each other in three head to head events. Not a bad turn out for a positive cause. This year will be no different as the 2010 Gators will be divided into six teams. Each one will be representing an organization related to Shands Heathcare. This is the university of Florida's health network. World renowned, and one of the best employers to work for in the Gainesville area.

Once there you will have the opportunity to pick up pledge cards on the West Concourse. Sorry Gator fans, no cash or checks will be accepted. You can only pledge through forms. Save all your cash instead for the concessions (Gate 2) and the Gator Sportshops. If in the Gainesville area come out and show your support. On that day it'll be much bigger than Gator football.
