Atlanta Bucks dress for charity

Add this share

There’s something special about rugby players in dresses. Really. I’m not sure if it’s something gay-friendly English rugby star Ben Cohen would do, but members of the Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club donned purple dresses on Saturday for their annual fund-raiser.

The Purple Dress Run 2008 started at Blake’s and moved around Piedmont Park, with “refreshment stops” at some of the bars that ring the Midtown park before ending at F.R.O.G.S. Cantina. The event helped raise funds for the club, which is heading to the Bingham Cup in June, and YouthPride.
