WAKA Announces Kick-it as WAKApalooza Weekend Charity Partner

We are pleased to announce Kick-It as our official charity of WAKApalooza Weekend in Las Vegas on Oct. 12 to 13!

Kick-it has been one of our charity partners for four years and together we have raised over $60,000 to help cure children's cancer. We are encouraging the nearly 100 teams who will attend WAKApalooza Weekend to ask family, friends, and co-workers to donate to the cause. The goal is to raise $500 per team for Kick-It with special prizes for each player that raises $50 or more. WAKA will donate $500 in the name of the team that raises the most money for Kick-it before the event.

"We are excited to once again be partnering with WAKA at WAKApalooza Weekend," said Kick-It Director, Cathy Welcsh. "WAKA has the best kickball and the best parties. For years, it's also been one of the best ways to raise money for a cure for children's cancer."

To keep up with the teams and their efforts to raise money to help cure children's cancer, please visit the charity page here.
