The game of kickball is often associated with grade school and recess, but a group of adults have come together to play the sport once again, all for a great cause.
According to the Dayton Daily News
, the Kickin' It For Breast Cancer co-ed kickball tournament will take place this Saturday, August 14. The event is being coordinated by Tammy Zell, who has seen her fair share of healthy women be diagnosed with the disease.
"I had a friend who used to own a women's fitness center in Kettering, and several clients had breast cancer," she told the news outlet.
Zell will be using the event to donate money to Making Strides and the American Cancer Society (ACS). She has done so for the past four years, and was the top fundraiser for three of them.
"The big thing is how generous people are," she told the news source.
The ACS's Making Strides
events has raised more than $400 million dollars since 1993. The walks are three to five miles in length and are non-competitive.
