Corporate Central and Special Olympics Wisconsin have teamed up once again to bring the Titletown Showdown, a flag football extravaganza challenges credit unions to form flag football teams that compete against each other to raise money for Special Olympics Wisconsin. David Murphy, MMCCU’s VP of Finance & Risk, is joining forces with Simplicity Credit Union’s team this year to compete.
“The Titletown Showdown is yet another opportunity for credit union staff to come together to raise money for a good cause,” said Murphy. “The flag football tournament presents an opportunity for friendly banter and cooperation between different credit unions, and the money raised supports a great cause in the Special Olympics.”
The one-day event will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2019 at City Stadium in Green Bay, WI, which was the former home turf of the Green Bay Packers from 1925 through 1956. This is Murphy’s second year participating in the event and he enjoys supporting the cause.
“The Special Olympics bring opportunities to a great group of individuals who work hard to succeed in sports to achieve accomplishments in all they do. These athletes inspire others to work hard and to set goals to push ourselves to achieve greatness,” he said. “Learning disabilities can affect any of us, and we all know someone in our lives who may have a disability, but these individuals strive to make the most of their opportunities. The organization also works hard behind the scenes researching and working to find ways to better the lives of those impacted by intellectual disabilities.”
All proceeds collected by the flag football teams benefit Special Olympics Wisconsin athletes and help foster the Special Olympics mission: “To provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and experience joy while participating in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, Special Olympics athletes, and the community.”
