Kickball for a Cause Beneficiaries

Josiah Gilliam Kickball for a Cause, Signature Events

The entire PUMP team thanks everyone who voted, shared, donated, and/or supported our Kickball for a Cause beneficiary process! We are excited to announce that there will be two beneficiaries for this year’s tournament. Both organizations do great work and were the only two organizations to earn over three hundred total votes.

Also, don’t forget to save-the-date for the tournament which will take place on Saturday, August 12th in Mellon Park!

Our 2023 Kickball for a Cause Beneficiaries:

Pittsburgh Hardball Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit youth advocacy organization that strives to enrich the lives of youth in the Greater Pittsburgh area. They have an intent focus on empowering underrepresented populations.  They deliver meaningful enrichment programming to create positive and transformative outcomes on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.  Their vision is to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive landscape across our region.


Evolve Coaching provides support to individuals with disabilities and our community through education, employment, and the arts. Evolve provides highly specialized coaching services to more than 200 people each year in the Pittsburgh area, helping these individuals become integrated and productive members of the local community.

Congratulations to both organizations! Stay tuned for more information about the great work they do and about the tournament in August.
