BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Members of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office competed in the “No Bad Days” Kickball Tournament and Family Fun Day that serves as a fundraiser for the “No Bad Days” Foundation that helps kids with disabilities.

The tournament is held annually at Rodes Park in West Melbourne to help disabled children through the purchases of life improving medical devices and other necessities. Each year 10 kickball teams compete for the gold medal while also getting a chance to play against some of the Brevard County kids that are helped by the organization.

Our team was invited to compete this year by the Law Firm of Widerman/Malek, who along with other great companies, help sponsor the tournament each year.

In addition to thanking and congratulating our team who participated in today’s tournament I want to also personally thank the members of our Bomb Unit, Aviation Unit, Corrections K-9 Unit, Mounted Posse, Ag/Marine Unit (Bobby The Boat) and Crime Prevention Unit for participating in today’s event. I could not be more proud of the men and women of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office who each give their heart and soul to our agency and community.
