Kick-It is designed to help you and your friends kick away childhood cancer! Whether holding a kickball game at your local park between friends or organizing a tournament at your school or other organizations, there are plenty of ways to raise funds and awareness to fight childhood cancer! Kick-It is ideal for businesses too. After work events are a great opportunity to engage your employees for an important cause. However you decide to Kick-It, know that you are raising critical research dollars and helping kids with cancer.
Kick-It was founded by 10-year-old Quinn Clarke during his second battle with cancer. He asked his parents if he could have a kickball game to raise money for childhood cancer research and that afternoon has since inspired thousands of supporters. Learn more about Kick-It’s history on the Kick-It website.
We recently partnered with Kick-It -- this means that Kick-It is now an official fundraising program of Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation!
Here’s how to get the ball rolling. You can also view our instructional video.
