Project Down & Dirty is myTalk 107.1’s annual award-winning reality-show-on-the-radio that has raised over $1,000,000 for Twin Cities charities.
This year grab your paddles because we’re bringing you….Project Down & Dirty: Pickleball!
Each year the myTalk hosts are good sports and play along with whatever we put them up to, but we’ll see what happens when it involves the competition of an actual sport we make them play!
All hosts and producers will work together and broadcast together WHILE each show learns the game of pickleball, trains for competition, and develops the mental fortitude to get themselves out of a pickle and onto the podium as the championship team!
We’ll host an exhibition tournament with show versus show style brackets at Lucky Shots Pickleball Club in Northeast Minneapolis on October 13th.
This year we’ll discover who is the GOAT and who is just there to take one for the team. The ball is in their court now!
Stay tuned for ticket details because sports are nothing without spectators.

"Brave Like Gabe” started as a hashtag to support professional runner Gabriele “Gabe” Grunewald as she sought treatment for her third battle with an incurable rare salivary gland cancer in 2017.
As a professional runner and rare cancer advocate, Gabe founded The Brave Like Gabe Foundation to share her story, inspire others to connect and do the same, and to make a difference in the cancer community.
During her cancer journey, Gabe experienced firsthand many of the challenges faced by rare cancer patients and the need for dedicated research funding.
She also felt strongly that running and physical activity were like medicine during all phases of her cancer journey.
