Hybrid Friday: Kickball For the Kids!

It was another incredible Hybrid Friday at the KEEN offices! We sent a team of employees and interns to the 4th Annual Playworks Portland Corporate Kickball Fundraiser. A variety of companies from across the Portland-Metro area were represented, from law firms to fortune 500 corporations. We rallied our teams to seek the “Golden Kickball Trophy” and enjoy a day of delicious food, beverages, and  friendly play. Above the fun and games, more importantly we gathered to help raise funds for nonprofit Playworks Portland!

Playworks is a national nonprofit that reduces playground bullying and conflicts and improves school climate through fun, healthy, inclusive games and physical activity. In 2012-13 Playworks Portland provides full-day on-site programming to 13 low-income public elementary schools in Portland, serving 5,500 students daily! 

After a few close games, our team held a 1-2 record at the end of the day. Although we fell short of the “Golden Trophy”, it didn’t stop us from having a ton of fun along the way. Here are a few pictures from the day to give you a glimpse of the experience!
