Philadelphia Corporate Kickball Tournament 2013

  1. Updates

What do 7,500 kids at 16 low-income schools in Philadelphia have in common? They all receive safe, meaningful and inclusive play and physical activity everyday through Playworks!

We welcome you and your company to join Playworks in an afternoon of nostalgia over green grass, a wide open field, and a big red bouncy ball at our 3rd Annual Playworks Corporate Kickball Tournament. Our tournament offers local businesses the chance to give back to their community while enjoying a few hours of play and bonding with co-workers. Playworks is a proven and scalable model aimed at increasing physical activity in low-income schools. We hope that your company joins us in our work by supporting this event.

This year’s tournament, on Thursday, June 20 from 4-7 pm will include opportunities for networking (or friendly trash-talking); complimentary T-shirts for all participants; food and drinks; and a bit of relaxed (or intense!) kickball competition against other Philadelphia area businesses The winning team will receive the coveted Golden Kickball trophy and plenty of high fives.

Our hope is that each participant walks off the field feeling like a star, having played a fun game of kickball while making a valuable contribution to an organization that is working to improve the health and well-being of children in Philadelphia every day. All event proceeds support Playworks Philadelphia, which provides increased opportunities for physical activity and safe, meaningful play to over 7,500 students at 16 low-income schools.

We hope to raise a minimum $20,000 from this year’s event and we hope that your company joins other Philadelphia companies in this effort. Your leadership will help leverage the power of play to change the way that 7,500 kids experience the school day.
