Jarvis Landry Sports Challenge

JARVIS LANDRY SPORTS CHALLENGE
FRIDAY, JULY 19, 2019 FROM 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
We are pleased to announce the Inaugural Jarvis Landry Sports Challenge, here in Cleveland!
 
The Jarvis Landry Sports Challenge is an event to raise funds for the Northern Ohio Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, whereby Cleveland area student athletes (ages 8-14) will represent Cleveland Companies that sponsor their participation (at no cost to the children), to compete in a series of sports challenges.  Tentatively, events include: Football pass; obstacle course; running relay; football catch; football kick.
 
Sponsoring Companies can participate by nominating a team on their own (kids of your employees, for instance); or the CF Foundation will assemble a group of children (10 per team, ages 8-14) for you.
 
All youth participants will compete as a team, but awards will be presented based on individual results for both boys & girls, and for each grade level (3rd thru 8th grades).  Each participant will be given a souvenir shirt to be worn at the event (with the name of the sponsoring company); with food & beverages provided throughout the day; an opportunity to interact with Jarvis Landry of the Cleveland Browns; and attend a post-event celebration & awards program.

 
               
 
JARVIS LANDRY’S CF STORY:
 
Fighting CF is very personal to Jarvis Landry. A young woman he knew in high school, who he considers his “first love” -- had the disease, and lost her battle in 2015, after a double-lung transplant, at age 24.  Jarvis promised her he would continue the fight against CF and raise awareness of the disease. To demonstrate his commitment, Jarvis wore cleats featuring the CF Foundation in two NFL games.  He also spearheaded an event in Miami in March, 2018 (Jarvis Jam) that grossed over $100K! 
 
Now, serving as honorary chair and host of this event in Cleveland – Jarvis will continue with his promise.  You can help -- and provide a unique opportunity for local children to join in his fight -- by sponsoring a youth team!  Cost to sponsor a youth team is $5,000.  For more information on a variety of sponsor levels, click the sponsorship tab.
 
EVENT SITE:  JAMES F. RHODES FIELD / Cleveland, OH (permit pending):
 
Your sponsored team will compete at one of the five fields designated by Dee & Jimmy Haslam to refurbish through The Cleveland Browns “First & Ten” initiative.  This site best exemplifies the purpose of why this field was chosen for an investment in the first place (to provide quality opportunities for community activities, to be utilized by citizens in the surrounding neighborhood) as they give back to the community in which they live, and to also learn about the importance of philanthropic involvement.
 
For more information, please contact Executive Director Nate Cross at the local CF Northern Ohio Chapter Office: 216.901.CURE
 
 
JAMES F. RHODES FIELD (permit pending)
Because this field was designated by The Cleveland Browns as a multi-use outdoor "laboratory" to be utilized by citizens in the surrounding neighborhoods; this is an ideal location to have those in our community help the CF Foundation via their participation in this event!
