The New Balance/Boston Cannons Game Changer
New Balance and the Boston Cannons are teaming up to give three lucky Cannons fans the weekend of a lifetime.
What makes a Game Changer?
A Game Changer is someone who does whatever it takes to win, plays their heart out every game, over-achieves in the classroom and makes their community a better place. If you fit this description or know someone who does, New Balance and the Boston Cannons want to say thanks!
Go to the Boston Cannons Official Facebook Page and tell us your story. We want you to upload a video, no longer than two minutes, or send us a letter telling us know why you should be the Game Changer.
We will be choosing the lucky winners for our June 11, July 23 and August 13 games. Each Game Changer will receive the following during their game weekend:
(1) Attendance at Cannons practice on the Friday night prior to the game
(2) Participation in the following pre-game team activates on game day: walk-through, video break down with coaches and breakfast with the team
(3) A seat on the Cannons’ bench during the game.
(4) Each winner will also receive a $500 gift certificate redeemable at ShopNewBalance.com for New Balance footwear, apparel and accessories.
