Playworks 2018 Kickball Tournament Results

  1. Updates

On Friday, June 15, Playworks Minnesota hosted our annual kickball tournament. Here are a few highlights:

This year we added a live fundraising component as an added challenge to our participating teams. The Fueled Collective kickball team, “New Kicks on the Block,” blew away the competition by raising $3,600 to win the Champions for Kids Team Challenge to support kids in Playworks Twin City Schools! This was their first time participating in the Annual Kickball Tournament. Double High Five, Fueled Collective!

The Allianz Life Kickin’ Chickens won this year’s 2018 Kickball tournament. Competing against 17 other corporate kickball teams from around the Twin Cities, this is Allianz Life’s second consecutive year winning the coveted traveling kickball trophy!

Sunrise Banks dominated the field for Longest Kick, winning both the male and female championships. Way to go, Sunrise!

Thanks to all the teams who participated for all your continued support.
