Every season, each WAKA sports league chooses and supports a charity partner. So far this year, players have raised and donated more than $50,000 and worked with some amazing organizations around the world. These causes are dear to our hearts and we want to share some information with you about their missions so you can get involved too.
Playworks - Playworks is a national nonprofit organization that supports learning by providing safe, healthy and inclusive play and physical activity to low-income schools at recess and throughout the entire school day. Playworks currently serves more than 130,000 students around the US.
Two teams of WAKA kickball players from New York, Georgia, Massachussets, New Hampshire, and Connecticut just broke world record for the longest kickball game!
