Alongside the Miss San Diego Scholarship Organization, Miss San Diego 2019 and Miss San Diego’s Outstanding Teen 2019, Strike Force players will pass out flyers and bandages to increase awareness of CMN Hospitals during Children’s Hospital Week, which began on March 18 and concludes on March 24.
The Strike Force (0-3) will kick off the second home game of the team’s inaugural IFL regular season schedule this Sunday, March 24 at Pechanga Arena, at 3500 Sports Arena Blvd., in a Week 5 matchup against the Green Bay Blizzard (1-2). Kickoff is set for 5:05 p.m. PT.
CMN Hospitals is the national platform of the Miss America Organization, Miss California Organization and Miss San Diego Scholarship Organization. Since 1983, CMN Hospitals has helped fill funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion for costs of care not fully covered by insurance and Medicaid, mostly $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns.
Every minute, 62 children enter a CMN Hospital, and every day, the hospitals treat 16,200 kids with trauma, 2,329 kids for surgeries, 2,128 kids with cancer, 935 kids with diabetes and 925 babies in NICU. The nonprofit’s mission is to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
The San Diego Strike Force joined the Indoor Football League as an expansion team for its inaugural season in 2019 under the co-ownership of Roy Choi and Greg Anderson with general manager Ryan Eucker at the helm. The team plays its home games at Pechanga Arena San Diego. Tickets and partnerships are available for the 2019 season. For more information, visit www.sdstrikeforce.com.
