Roncelli Hits The Turf For A Good Cause

In a spirited display of camaraderie and competitive enthusiasm, Roncelli took to the field at Ford Field on February 10, 2024, for the annual “A Touch of Football” event. As a proud Coach Sponsor, Roncelli joined forces with over 30 other teams, 465 players, all rallying behind the noble cause of combating Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and improving the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.

Amongst the iconic backdrop of the Detroit Lions’ stadium and 700 spectators, Roncelli’s team, made up of Roncelli employees, embraced the opportunity to have fun and attempt to showcase some skills while contributing to a greater mission. And let’s not forget about the friendly rivalry! Losing to a well-deserved team, who happened to be one of Roncelli’s valued clients, only added to the excitement of the day.

Beyond the thrill of playing on the same turf as Jared Goff, it was a day about all coming together for a great cause and making a positive impact in the community. The morning started with the Mission Speakers: The Jacobs family. They have a son, Matthias, who is a patient at the young age of 12 years old. As a direct result of fundraisers like “A Touch of Football” Matthias was able to attend Camp Oasis, a week-long, 24 hour medical supervised camp for kids with Crohn’s or ulcerative colitis (IBD),  on a scholarship.  The non-profit volunteer-fueled organization commits 80 cents of every dollar goes towards research, patient education and support.

The annual event raised a whopping $172,000!!!  With many different ways to get involved visit and see how you or your company can help raise awareness, and maybe we will see you on the field next year 🙂
