Kicking Cancer

Philly Kicking Cancer is back for our 12th annual kickball tournament for cancer research. After missing the last two years due to pandemic concerns we are happy to get back out there Saturday, August 6 2022 at the dairy fields in Fairmount Park Philadelphia. The format is an all day kickball tournament, with teams competing round robin in the morning and then a full playoff bracket for qualifying teams in the afternoon. Win or lose it’s a great time and it’s for a good cause – all proceeds are donated to Fox Chase Cancer Center. Think of it like kickball games with a tailgate in between. Or a tailgate with kickball games in between, whichever you prefer. We would love to see the Philly Kickball fam out there helping us raise money for a good cause. In the past, PKL teams have won the entire tournament and it would be great to see that this year too! If you can’t make the tournament but still want to support our cause we are also taking general donations towards the tournament which will also go directly to Fox Chase.

To register to play or donate to our event, you can check out the event portal at this location – Philly Kicking Cancer. We are offering a $10 registration discount to anyone who signs up before July 1st.

We would love to see you all out there helping us support a good cause!!
