These are the Bucks and the Ducks, not your typical athletes. Once again, at this year's Turkey Bowl, they're raising money for disabled kids through Easter Seals. Patty Mallad's the Development Specialist for Easter Seals.
"Easter Seals does not ever turn anyone away with the inability to pay, so by having events like Turkey Bowl, it raises funds, and helps cover the costs of the therapies that we offer."
Each player has to raise at least $250 to play. Tim Cassidy coaches the Bucks; he's been doing this for more than a decade. He says most of the guys give up their free time and donate, because the money stays in the community.
"...99% of the money stays in Blair County, its great for me to do charity work like this and I think those guys love it and that's why they come back all the time."
The game was free for the public, and everyone got a free pair of gloves. Mallad says they're already planning for Turkey Bowl 30.
"...29 years and people still love to do it; we're already talking about next year and trying to make the 30th a special one."
Regardless of what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, the trophies aren't given out to winners or losers, they're given out to those who raise the most money, for disabled kids.
The Bucks won 27-14, but more importantly, the game raised more than $15,000 dollars for Easter Seals.
