On Saturday, December 17, KidsRStrong2 (KRS2) will host the inaugural KRS2 Holiday Charity Kickball Classic. The coed event will take place at Chester L. Davis Sportsplex, located at 1251 W. League City Pkwy., in League City. Teams of 10 or more are invited to attend the fundraiser for a small donation of $300 per team, or $30 per player. Participants must be 14 years or older, and must register at www.kidsrstrong2.org/kickball by the deadline of December 3.
“We expect this to be a fun, family-friendly event. Those who have already registered are extremely excited and working to get the best teams together,” said Tomika Gamble, president and founder of KRS2.
With current and former athletes, as well as coaches from various school districts participating, there will be a lot of competitive folks on the field. Many of who are already joking about winning the championship.
“It’s going to be pretty hilarious to watch these former athletes and coaches try to relive their glory days,” said Gamble while laughing. “They think their still young, but they definitely aren’t what they used to be.”
Not only will there be sports-oriented people in attendance, but there will also be those who are just interested in supporting the cause and having a good time.
Proceeds from the event will be used to support pediatric cancer patients and their families during the Christmas holiday.
“We’ve already received numerous submissions of names of families in need from social workers that we partner with at various local hospitals,” added Gamble.
The plan is to allow the winning team to provide Christmas for a family on the night before Christmas, with the funds raised. Dinner and gifts will be donated, as well as other needs fulfilled, depending on the amount of funds raised from the event.
To support this cause, donate and/or register to participate by visiting www.kidsrstrong2.org/kickball. Sponsorship and vendor information is also available online.
