charity touch football event at MetLife Stadium–
PARSIPPANY, NJ – November 5, 2013 — Planned Companies, a leader in the janitorial, maintenance, security and concierge services industry, is proud to support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, New Jersey chapter. On Sunday, October 27th at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, Planned Companies and 27 other teams competed in a double-elimination football tournament to support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America.
Hundreds of fans came out to support these teams taking part in this fundraiser by the New Jersey state chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America at MetLife Stadium, playing in a touch football tournament on the field reserved most Sundays in the fall for the legendary New York Giants or the New York Jets.
“It’s an amazing feeling when you’re on their field, you feel like a real football player, playing for their team” said Kevin Richardson, Regional Operations Manager at Planned Companies, which sponsored the event and a team playing in the double-elimination contest. “I have been to games at the stadium and that is an experience with 80,000 screaming fans, but to actually play on the field is unbelievable, plus it’s for an amazing cause, which makes it even more memorable.”
It was the third annual CCFA fundraiser at the stadium, and organizers said it was the most successful so far, drawing close to 700 players, family and friends, and raising $190,000 to fund research, awareness building and support for the nearly 50,000 people in New Jersey who have Crohn’s disease or colitis. Planned Companies was proud to be part of such an important cause, and is looking forward to sponsoring and participating in the 2014 CCFA Touch of Football event.
