We’re back for a 16th year! Kickball for a Cause is coming to Mellon Park on Saturday, August 11 for a full day of fun activities to raise funds and awareness for two important local nonprofits.
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, Kickball for a Cause raised over $10,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh and Allegheny Cleanways.
