DFRC Blue-Gold All★Star Football Game

DFRC 65TH with player 

Be An Inspiration.

For 65 years, DFRC has focused on the intrinsic value of each life.  We strive to provide opportunities to learn from each other and translate those lessons into ways that provide a meaningful impact in the world.  During these unprecedented times of illness, anxiety, and uncertainty resulting from the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have remained vigilant in our most important objective to maintain the safety and well-being of everyone involved with DFRC.  In this effort, we have made some extremely difficult decisions based upon careful investigation and thoughtful discussions with informed professionals.  As a result, we regret to announce that the 65th Annual DFRC Blue-Gold Star Football Game and all related activities have been cancelled.

To our Hand-in-Hand buddies, we celebrate you for your ABILITIES and the life-lessons you teach us.  To our football players, ambassadors, cheerleaders, and band members, we congratulate you for being chosen to represent your school in the 2020 DFRC Blue-Gold All★Star Football Program and Game.  We commend each of you for being identified by the administration of your school as dedicated leaders of outstanding character.  We are proud of all of our buddies and participants and wish you the very best as you move forward in life.  Jerseys/shirts for each participant group have been ordered and we will make arrangements in the coming months for distribution.

To our faithful donors, we thank you for your most generous support and goodness.  Funding is needed now more than ever and we’re deeply grateful to know that your commitment to enrich the lives of all people is strong. 

To all the DFRC family volunteers, please know how much we value the time, effort and love you share.  Your commitment is unparalleled and deeply appreciated.

We want to thank everyone for your understanding and support as we continue to navigate through the difficulties of the current worldwide situation.  Please stay safe and follow all CDC guidelines.  DFRC remains strong, proud, and ready to serve.

Most sincerely,


Anthony T. Glenn, Ed.D.                                                      Bruce A. DiNardo

Our Blue-Gold High School Participants – Ambassadors, Band Member, Cheerleaders, and Football Players – play a vital role in the success the DFRC Blue-Gold program and the DFRC mission to enrich the lives of Delawareans with intellectual disABILITIES.

Many of the students take part in our Hand-in-Hand program where they are matched with children and young adults with intellectual disABILITIES – our Blue-Gold AllStar Buddies – to share their Blue-Gold experience leading up to Game Day.

Each month of the program, there are statewide events– a dance party, a bowling outing, a picnic, and more! – organized by the DFRC Blue-Gold Committee. Participants and Buddies often get together between events to see movies, go to school events, or just talk and hang out together.
