Last month, we held the inaugural UF Health Celebrity Gridiron Challenge in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital. Approximately 300 people attended the fun-filled day as participants and spectators. We are pleased to share that 14 teams participated in the flag football tournament, and the event raised nearly $170,000. Congratulations to the flag football champions, the UF Support Services team!
