TEANECK GIRLS PLAY IN THIRD ANNUAL GIRLS POWDER PUFF FOOTBALL GAME
classmates during this time of the year was overflowing with girls who gathered for the event.
The yearly game takes place due to the efforts of The school's H.E.A.L. club ( Helping Each Other Achieve Longevity) The club
focuses on empowering young women to help one another as well as others. Part of the proceeds from the evening event were
donated to Holy Name Medical Center's breast cancer center.
The club is the brainchild of Olivia Betances, one of the deans at Teaneck High School. H.E.A.L. started out back in 2005 with just five
girls. The young sisterhood promotes positive self esteem, high academic achievement and sisterhood amongst it's members all while
carrying on a consistent mission of helping others in the community. To this date the group has helped thousands of girls. Recipients
of H.E.A.L.'s outreach efforts can range anywhere from middle school girls up to senior citizens. They have a long laundry list of
community service activities which keeps them going through the entire school year. That's amazing when you consider that these kids
participate in other school activities as well as sports teams ( not to mention homework).
Every grade was represented as the girls warmed up in the cool evening air. It was clear that they've been closely watching their male
classmates closely because they displayed many of the same gridiron skills seen during boys competitions but without the contact.
Laughter filled the air as the teams of girls squared off in a one-loss-elimination round of football. The teams who'd lost an elimination
game was given the chance to play in a consolation game. If the truth were to be told , the event seemed to start out on high note and
it simply got better from there. The senior girls wanted to go out winners and that 's what they accomplished as they out battled all
But, the truth is that everybody associated with the group or the event is a winner!
Below is a quick video created with images taken at the event.
