Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting.

The first Blue-Gold Game was played on August 25,1956. DFRC’s founders, Bob Carpenter and Jim Williams, two local sports enthusiasts who were the parents of children with intellectual disabilities, inspired the game. They wanted to host a fundraising event that spread awareness about intellectual disabilities, while raising funds for programs to benefit programs serving these children.

The Hand-In-Hand Program was added in 1974 to help the high school participants become more aware and accepting of those who the game benefits - people with intellectual disabilities.

Until 1994, the All*Star program included queen candidates representing each of the high schools. In 1994 the Ambassador Program established to help build greater awareness, leadership and activity into the high schools. Today more than fifty public, private, parochial, vo-tech and charter schools across the entire state are invited to participate, helping to spread DFRC’s message of diversity and acceptance throughout their schools and communities.
