MERIDIAN, Idaho — The Treasure Valley Women's Football League is hosting a tournament on Saturday to raise awareness for breast cancer while at the same time encouraging players and fans to bring a toy that the League will donate to kids at Christmas.

We brought you the story of this league back in August, which showcased how flag football gives women a chance to compete in a rowdy team game on the gridiron.

The Black Widows won the championship this past season. This season, however, the Sisterhood Bowl will divide up all the teams so the girls will get a chance to have some different teammates.

While this league is growing, the founders of this league also decided they wanted to give back to the community and it wasn't hard to get girls on board.

“They really like that we are actually doing something for breast cancer. They like that we are making it a focal point especially being in a women’s league," said Aaron Thomas, one of the creators of the league and a coach. "A lot of the players have kids so they would hate to have a child wake up on Christmas morning and not have something to unwrap."

The Sisterhood Bowl starts at 10:00 a.m. and runs until 1:00 p.m. in Settlers Park on Saturday and the action on the field is intense.
