Kraig’s Dodgeball Tournament is an annual event of dodgeball and cornhole competitions to raise money for the Kraig Andre’ Diggs Scholarship Fund. The purpose of the tournament is not only to keep Kraig’s name alive among his family, friends, and the hundreds of people whose lives he touched over his 20 years, but it is also to fund a scholarship which will perpetuate his name for years to come.
The first tournament was held on September 29, 2018 at Barnstable High School, where 32 dodgeball teams and 32 corn hole teams competed and, along with sponsorships and individual donations, raised $35,000 for the Kraig Andre’ Diggs Scholarship Fund! The winning Dodgeball Team was Fresh Ketch and the winning Cornhole Team was Chris Picariello and Jack Warren.
Two Barnstable High School students will receive a one time scholarship of $1,500. One student in each of the following High Schools will receive a one time $500 Scholarship – Bourne High School, Dennis Yarmouth High School, Falmouth High School, Mashpee High School, Monomoy High School, Nauset High School, Sandwich High School, Cape Cod Regional Technical High School and Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School. Our goal is to bestow these scholarships to exemplary students and to assist others in making their dreams of attending college or a university, a reality. Financial need is considered, however all students are encouraged to apply.
The memorial and scholarship fund is created in the loving memory and beautiful life of our KRAIG ANDRE’ DIGGS. Our aspiration is to honor him, his irreplaceable spirit and his unprecedented compassionate heart. We will live for him until such time that we are reunited with our Beloved Kraig.
