Alpha Xi Delta flag football tourney raising funds for Autism Speaks

Football FrenXiKEARNEY – University of Nebraska at Kearney sorority Alpha Xi Delta is hosting a flag football tournament to raise money and awareness for autism.

Football FrenXi is at 7 p.m. Oct. 26 at UNK’s Foster Field. Teams are made up of between six and 10 players, and the entry fee to play is per team. Event proceeds benefit Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization.

Autism Speaks is dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.

Alpha Xi Delta formed a national partnership with Autism Speaks in 2009 to help raise funds and awareness for those affected by autism spectrum disorders. Since then, Alpha Xi Delta chapters and alumnae associations have participated in numerous awareness and fundraising initiatives in their local communities and at host institutions across the country.
