Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University’s football team is gearing up for its highly anticipated annual Victory Day celebration, set to take place on August 12 at 7 p.m.

The event, which will be held at the Frost Kalnow Stadium, has become a cherished tradition for the Tiffin community, offering a unique and supportive environment for cognitively or physically challenged children to partake in the excitement of the sport.

During Victory Day, participants will be given the extraordinary opportunity to not only witness the game but actively engage in it. Whether they choose to take the field themselves or cheer on their fellow players, the children will have a chance to showcase their skills and determination. One of the highlights of the event is the thrilling experience of running for touchdowns against a mock defense, undoubtedly a moment that will be etched in their memories for years to come.

To honor their remarkable achievements, each participant will be presented with a well-deserved medal at the conclusion of the event. This commemorative token will serve as a lasting reminder of their victory and the immense pride they have brought to themselves and their community.

To ensure a truly enriching experience, each child will be paired with a Dragon Buddy, a dedicated football player or cheerleader from Tiffin University. These mentors will offer guidance, support, and companionship throughout the entire event, fostering a sense of camaraderie and friendship.

The festivities will kick off with a grand entrance for the participants. As they make their way onto the field, running through a tunnel of anticipation, they will be warmly welcomed by an enthusiastic crowd. The public address system will amplify the excitement, and the vibrant tunes of the live TU band will add an extra layer of energy to the atmosphere. Proud parents and guardians will have the opportunity to capture these unforgettable moments as their children take center stage.
