2018 Kick It 4 Kids


Kickball Tournament

Presented by The Blood Connection

Ten teams will go head-to-head in fundraising and on the kickball field. Two winning teams will be named the "Champions for Kids" during the tournament based on the team that raises the most money, and the team who wins the kickball championship. 100 percent of dollars raised from the tournament will directly benefit programs and services at WakeMed Children's.
