Get Ready for the World’s Largest Charity Kickball Tournament

Kickball Tournament

In just one month Chicago’s Grant Park with be filled with over 1,500 kickball fanatics taking over all 15 fields on Chicago’s lakefront for the 9th annual Kicks for a Cure. If you’re not familiar with the event, it’s the world’s largest charity kickball tournament hosted by TMC , a C.H. Robinson division. Since 2003, enthusiastic kickballers have gathered in downtown Chicago to raise funds. This will be the 3rd year in a row we have worked with Receptions for Research, Carolina Panthers’ tight end Greg Olsen’s foundation. The foundation raises money to fight cancer in honor of Greg’s mother, Susan, an eleven-year breast cancer survivor.

We love this tournament because it’s an outrageous amount of fun for a great cause. The event is always a blast, and 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to the charity. It’s great to know that we—and the big-hearted people on the 60 kickball teams—are making a difference year after year.

Watch these videos to see the Kicks for a Cure event in action.

Although team registration is sold out, people can still come out and participate by buying a spectator day pass. Even if you’re not in the Chicago area, you can get involved by sponsoring a player or making a general donation. To date, Kicks for a Cure has raised nearly $1 million. This past year we were able to help support a family room at the world’s largest Ronald McDonald House. For complete details or to get involved, please visit the Kicks for a Cure website.

Thanks for reading and be sure to check back in July when we post pictures and new fundraising totals.
