All registration fees will be donated in their entirety to Sanford-Burnham. The institute is one of the anchors of the emerging life-sciences cluster dubbed “Medical City” located in Lake Nona. Collectively, the region is projected to have an economic impact in the neighborhood of $6.4 billion and generate nearly 26,000 jobs in the next 10 years, according to a recent study.
“I'm so excited to take part in this charity kickball tournament for the second year in a row,” says Jennifer Thompson, president of Insight Marketing Group and co-creator of the Community Kickball Challenge. "After having so much fun last year, I hope we can end up donating even more funds this year to support cancer and diabetes research as part of Team Burnham."
Kick ball teams may consist of up to 10 players with the stipulation that at least 20 percent of the team be female. Interested teams may register now through January 27 for $400; however, registration will close once 32 team slots are filled.
