Leaps of Love to hold ‘Backyard Olympics’

Leaps of Love will hold its eighth annual Backyard Olympics at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 6 at the Zobrist Motorsports Complex, 12760 Iberg Road in Highland. Teams are limited to the first 64 participants who sign in, so come early.

Events will include bags/cornhole, shubocce, giant ball pong and pantyhose bowling, or a euchre tournament. Food will be provided (side dish optional). BYOB. Cost is a $10 donation per player. There will also be a 50-50 raffle, T-shirt sales and a bounce house.

With the growing number of children diagnosed every day with cancer, Leaps of Love’s goal is to help these families engage together and give them hope, strength and encouragement to endure the challenges everyone in the family faces. Family retreats, social events, outings, workshops and more help give these families the opportunity to strengthen their lives with the support, wisdom and encouragement of others who have experienced similar scenarios to theirs.
