Thank you to our 2016 Sponsors:
On August 6th, 2016, 620+ participants joined us for the 14th annual Kickball for a Cause for a day of kickball and fun! Teams played in round-robin lightening games in the morning/ early afternoon. Winners of each division advanced to a single elimination tournament later that day.
In addition to a great time, Kickball for a Cause promotes and raises funds for PUMP and Pittsburgh nonprofits whose work focuses on our strategic priorities. With the help of our participants, Kickball for a Cause has raised tens of thousands of dollars for important local organizations. The 2016 Causes are below and stay tuned for information about the 2017 tournament and Causes.

Food Rescue's mission is to respond to the disconnect between the fact that we waste 40% of our food while 1 in 6 goes hungry. They aim to address the disconnect in distribution—in supply and access—by rescuing food about to go to waste and directly distributing to organizations that serve communities in need. They are a rapid response organization with a reverse logistics model that utilizes technology to aggregate and match food donors and beneficiaries by mobilizing a dedicated truck and a community of volunteers to efficiently and cost-effectively transport food between locations.
