Current Flood

A flag football tournament with “X-Factor” athletics and celebrities that raises money and awareness for kids battling life-threatening illnesses.

The Battlefield Brawl is a Flag Football Tournament that raises money and awareness for kids battling life-threatening illnesses. This year’s tournament is dedicated to The Davies Project of Mid-Michigan, an organization that provides rides to children and their families to medical appointments.  In addition, New World Flood continues to support the Oldham Project by sponsoring a program A Day to Breathe.  This tournament is a unique opportunity for the community to play alongside former Michigan State University football and basketball players as well as community leaders: they are known as X-Factors and are drafted by teams who raise the most funds for New World Flood programs.  To sign up, go to https://battlefield-brawl.eventbrite.com

This year’s event is endorsed by the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports

Battlefield Brawl is a one day flag football tournament for teams of 8-10 average Janes and Joes to compete. X-Factors are notables, like Drew Stanton, current Arizona Cardinals and former MSU quarterback and Marty Klebba, Michigan native and actor, Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Teams register with New World Flood and draft X-Factors to their teams to increase their chances to win the coveted Jacquelyn Barham Championship trophy. Teams raise funds to better their draft positions. The Brawl is also held the Sunday following the annual MSU Football Spring Green and White game.  This year’s tournament is Sunday, April 24, 2016 at Marshall Park in Lansing, Michigan.

Our Brawl Champion IS a Cancer Survivor! Justin Caine who battled brain cancer as a kid found his passion and purpose from his experience. Justin wanted to share his victory and his story to help other kids battling life-threatening illnesses. So in 2009, Justin partnered with New World Flood Founder, Todd TJ Duckett, to create Battlefield Brawl.

“I was just so moved by Justin and his dedication to not just surviving, but thriving. My entire life in football has been about strength, but Justin showed me what true strength really was.” – Todd, Founder
