About the Foundation

Kicking Cancer Foundation is a charitable organization established to raise money for cancer research.  The organization currently hosts two annual kickball tournaments to raise money for the cancer research - Philly Kicking Cancer (PKC) and Chicago Kicking Cancer (CKC) in Chicago, IL.  To date the Kicking Cancer Foundation has raised over $300,000 for cancer research!  Our hope is that one day there will be a cure for cancer.

History of the Foundation  

In March of 2009, she began planning the first kickball tournament fundraiser which took place on August 8th, 2009; the day Philly Kicking Cancer was born. The tournament was a huge success and subsequently has grown each year since its inception. The committee members, volunteers, players, supporters and sponsors have raised over $300,000 for cancer research.  Now for 2018 we are planning our 10th annual tournament! It’s amazing what a simple idea can grow into.
