Phillies Ballgirls Dominate!

  1. Updates

Philadelphia launched our first annual Corporate Kickball tournament and more than 65 people showed up with their game faces on. Teams included support from the Phillies, the Sixers, and UPS among other corporate and community organizations. When the dust settled, the Phillies Ballgirls showed their athletic prowess by dominating the tournament – winning four straight games and marching to kickball victory!   This fun, team building, community event raised funds and awareness for our programs that deliver powerful anti-bullying,  anti-obesity, and conflict resolution programs for inner city kids.  A good time was had by all and the Phillies Ballgirls have already thrown down the challenge for any corporate team that is willing to take them on for next year.
