Lace up your sneakers and join us for some nostalgia over green grass and a big red bouncy ball for our 7th annual kickball tournament. The Playworks Illinois Corporate Kickball Tournament offers local businesses and individuals the opportunity to give back to their community while enjoying a few hours of play.
The Corporate Kickball event will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Lawrence Athletic Fields. The day will include complimentary jerseys for all participants, lunch, kickball and opportunities for networking and friendly competition with other area businesses all while serving the kids of Chicago. The winning team will receive plenty of high fives and the coveted Golden Kickball trophy.
Our hope is that each participant walks off the field feeling like a rock star, having played a fun game of kickball while making a valuable contribution to an organization working to reducing bullying and improving the health and well-being of children in Chicago’s low-income neighborhoods every day. All event proceeds support Playworks Illinois, which provides increased opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play to more than 30,000 students at over 30 elementary schools and youth organizations.
