An event called "The Good F: an All Female Flag Football Tournament" which is raising awareness for cancer patients. Speaking to Rosa, she has the ultimate goal behind "The Good F" project.

 Q&A with Rosa Armstrong

How did you get your start in Public Relations? "My ultimate goal was to help people. My passion is philanthropy, giving back and doing fundraisers. PR just became part of the job like many others. It's also about effecting change, building your own celebrity status, being able to use the fact that you're famous to effect change in the world."

This is the first time for a flag football tournament, based on the turn out will there be another one? "Yes, depending on the turn out I would like to try something different next year. A gala I think would be fun as well, to see everybody dressed up for a great cause."

Do you or anyone you know have direct contact to cancer? "Cancer runs in my family, it has shown me the importance of getting check ups and protecting your body. A lot of people are afraid to go to the doctor not knowing what's wrong with them. Hopefully raising social media awareness and outdoor activities can effect change."

How difficult was it to try and pull this event together? "Very difficult! Kaylin Garcia was the hardest to get in touch with. Getting women together period is challenging because everyone has different personalities. Not to mention this event is very costly. Once I explained the cause and the reasons behind "The Good F", everyone had no problem with agreeing."

Do you think social media has crippled physical action? "In some ways yes and no. I chose these women because they have a large social media following. There's power in retweeting, reposting, sharing etc. Then again, action is still needed. There's power in showing up & being there. There needs to be an uproar of social media and physical action."



Having this conversation with Rosa has definitely opened my eyes to the awareness of cancer and realizing how serious it is. We need to take more responsibility in going to the doctor, staying active and effect change. Stay tuned for more of The Good F updates here on Indy's Point!
