Kick Summer Hunger 2019

Kickball Tournament

Join United Way of Central Minnesota for our 3rd annual kickball tournament to KICK SUMMER HUNGER! During the summer, more kids are at risk of experiencing hunger – in fact, here in Central Minnesota, food shelf usage among children increases by 40% in the summer. Spend the afternoon competing for glory on the kickball field while making a difference in the lives of local children. #KickSummerHunger
