Andy 24

The Columbus Flyers are pleased to be once again involved with such a great event for some great local charities.

The Andy24 Event is one 24-hour long game of ultimate frisbee and many overlapping rounds of disc golf for 24-hours.

July 31-August 1, 2015, 7pm to 7pm

Fred Beekman Park, Columbus, Ohio

Andy24 was established to honor the memory of Andrew J. Starinchak, a fellow ultimate frisbee player, and J. Michael Dunn, a champion of Columbus disc golf. The event is attended by hundreds of men and women each year to participate in the sporting events and to raise money for local charities in memory of these two great men.  All proceeds from this event benefit local charities, including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Columbus and the Compassionate Friends Organization.
