ST. ALBANS, VT- Nineteen teams participated in a Dodgeball tournament.

It was held at Collins Pearly Center in St. Albans.

The teams raised $5,000 dollars to benefit United Way.

The money went towards 25 programs in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties serving around 30,000 people.

"Its a great mix. I mean some people are pretty competitive but everybody seems to have a great spirit and really understand why they are here and its all for charity. I think we've seen some pretty intense play but alot of fun. Alot of great attitudes and the sportsmanship is outstanding," said Sally Bortz, United Way Executive Director.

Organizers said healthy communities and healthy people are what this tournament was all about.
