Kickin’ for a Cause is a one-day kickball tournament. It's a way for young adults living in Cincinnati to contribute to a worthy cause: to promote awareness and address childhood poverty in Cincinnati—which has one of the highest child poverty rates in the country.

  • In 2014, 44.3 percent of Cincinnati’s children lived in poverty
  • Cincinnati’s rate is more than double the national rate of 21.7 percent and nearly double the state rate of 22.9 percent​ 

Proceeds will be given to organizations that are tackling the issue of child poverty, including The Reds Community Fund which benefits the Reds Urban Youth Academy; needs-based subsidies for Mayerson JCC youth programming; and Jewish Family Service Bigs & Littles.

Join the YAD team or join your friends and help kick out child poverty today! 

  • If you can’t attend, help us meet our fundraising goal of $5,000 by making a donation today.
  •  Volunteers are also needed. If you’re interested in volunteering, or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Jeff Blumental at 513-985-1513 or
