Help the Wounded Warrior Project – EMC’s 5th Annual #v0dgeball

I Want You!That’s right, that time of year is approaching… VMworld US 2013.

For the past 4 years, EMC has sponsored a v0dgeball (Translated Dodgeball for people with a virtual affinity) tourney at the US VMworld Conference.

In those 4 years, v0dgeball participants, spectators, & contributors have raised over $30,000 in donations for the Wounded Warrior Project. Not too shabby, but we can do better.  So here we are again with EMC’s 5th Annual v0dgeball Tourney.

A quick recap from last year:

A sample match can be seen here:

Looking at the galleries of photos that have been taken over the years, it is easy to see the competition, pain, sweat, and overall good time that is had, all while raising funds to help those that have given huge sacrifices while serving in the Armed Forces.
