If you get hungry there will also be plenty of vendors on site as well!
In 2009 Kick-It was founded by 10 year old cancer patient Quinn Clarke who had a big dream to cure cancer by playing kickball. Then in 2012, Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation teamed up with Kick-It to help promote and raise funds for the most promising research studies and projects. By being and important part of the fight to cure childhood cancer, just like a walk or 5k race, team members ask family, friends, and co-workers to sponsor them to play. Bring your “A” game and childhood memories of kickball to help children beat cancer! Awards will go to both the championship winning team and the team that manages to raise the most money. Special awards will go to the highest finishing high school and Emergency Personnel teams.
Funds raised benefit children’s cancer research across the country. Kick-It partners with national medical advisory boards to identify the most promising research studies and projects. Some projects include a study of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors at Harvard Medical College; The Children’s Tumor Foundation, Clinical research of the Children’s Oncology Group which reaches 90 percent of the children with cancer in the United States. Kick-It has once simple goal and that is to accelerate the cure for children with cancer. They believe no parent should have to watch a child wait for a cure. By organizing a game, joining a team or making a donation you are helping thousands of children fighting cancer in your hometown and across the country.
To Donate: You can donate to a particular kickball player, to a specific team or simply donate to this wonderful organization. You will then be considered a virtual player for your kindness! You can also donate in honor of someone special, or in memory of a loved one. Your donation will be acknowledged publicly at this kickball event. A $50 donation for a non-player will get you a free event t-shirt.
Preston Ford is excited and honored to sponsor such a special event which benefits an amazing cause. Be sure to bring your friends and family out to this special event! Seating is limited so make sure you bring your lawn chairs and blankets to watch the games!
