Kickball for a Cause

Kickball for a Cause

In 2022, PUMP we hope to once again host Kickball for a Cause at Mellon Park and bring together young people, ages 21+, for a day of kickball, fundraising, picknicking, and fun. Registration opens June 28th at Noon!

 

Since 2003, Kickball for a Cause (formerly Kickball for Hope) has featured teams who play in round-robin lightening games in Mellon Park throughout the day while enjoying generous donations of food, drink and music from our sponsors. The top teams advance into playoff rounds – which always generates a crowd of supporters and cheers.

 

Welcome our 2022 Causes!

 

Congratulations to Foster Love Project and Proud Haven who are our 2022 Causes! Learn more

Alcohol in 2021: Please stay tuned for 2022 alcohol information:

In the past, alcoholic beverages have always been included as part of the team registration fee. We were able to do this via a sponsorship with MillerCoors. Due to Covid-19, a lot of things have changed for both us and them. We are working with them now on the potential to provide some donations for this year, but we are unsure if, or how much, we will receive. We hope to know more soon and when we do, we will update you if we are able to provide any beverages as a part of your registration fee. Please be patient while we work on this donation.

 

Additionally, this year, we are so very excited to share with you that we have invited Bigham Tavern to oversee and run all our alcohol at the event! Bigham Tavern will be present with a keg cart and 5 taps to sell assorted alcoholic beverages at the event. This will be a great way to support Bigham Tavern after a year of closed doors and struggles as they have always gone out of their way to support us and our players! Due to permit regulations and insurance no outside alcohol can be brought to or consumed at the event. Our full alcohol policy can be found in our captain's packets.
