The DC Breeze #5kToss

One lucky fan at each Breeze home game during the 2017 season will get a chance to throw a disc 50 yards and win a $5000 grand prize!*

Dave Ohls hit the mannequin from 50 yards at our Sunday, June 4 game and won the $5000 grand prize!
*The 2017 grand prize has been claimed, but we have decided to continue the contest for the remaining two home games with a $1000 prize.

It’s pretty simple: we’ll pick a fan at random at each game and give that fan 3 discs. We’ll put a mannequin on the 50 yard line. If you’re selected, you’ll have limited time to hit the mannequin with a throw from 5 yards away to win a t-shirt. Then if you have any discs remaining (hopefully 2!), you can choose to run downfield and throw again from 25 yards away for a Breeze fan pack and/or 50 yards away for the grand prize. Yep, hit a mannequin from 50 yards and win the grand prize! Pretty simple.


Here’s the fine print…
