Kickball for a Cause is an annual event that raises funds and awareness for nonprofit and charitable organizations in the Pittsburgh region that align with PUMP’s advocacy efforts.
Since 2002, we have raised more than $110,000 and involved close to 9,000 community members in a day filled with activities, fun for all, and of course, kickball! Last year, 32 teams, 576 participants, and 34 volunteers teamed up to raise over $10,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh and Allegheny Cleanways.
Leading up to the tournament, we encourage people to nominate worthy non-profit organizations. After a vote and review process, two causes are selected to headline the annual event. Publicity and promotions leading up to the tournament, which happens in late summer/early fall, highlight the chosen causes, and funds raised by the teams competing in the tournament go to support the chosen causes.
This Year’s Event
Join us for the 16th annual Kickball for a Cause on Saturday, August 11th at Mellon Park. This year we will be raising money and building awareness for HEARTH and Women and Girls Foundation. Team registration opens on June 26th!
