BGSU police compete against students in Together We Ball

From BGSU OFFICE OF MARKETING & COMMUNICATIONS

Kickball will be the game when the BGSU Police join with communities of color in the September edition of Together We Ball. The game will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21 in the Perry Field House.

Spectators are invited to attend and cheer on the teams, enjoy the music provided by D.J. Silk and win BGSU swag.

Together We Ball was launched by the BGSU Office of Multicultural Affairs in partnership with the Campus Police Division in 2016 as a friendly basketball tournament designed to build a bridge between communities of color and local law enforcement. The success of those events prompted the expansion of the program this year to include kickball, which will provide more interaction between the groups and extend an opportunity to include those who don’t play basketball, said Sheila Brown, interim director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs.

Additional partners for the event include BGSU Recreation and Wellness, Bowling Green city police, Coke and student organizations.

Guests with disabilities are requested to indicate if they need special services, assistance or appropriate modifications to fully participate in this event by contacting Accessibility Services at access@bgsu.edu or 419-372-8495 before the event.
