The St. Alexius Kickball Tournament on Saturday, September 26 will greatly benefit the pediatric therapy department. Those who are unable to play are encouraged to donate to help improve this wonderful program. 

SAKT is an annual one-day, coed kickball tournament that raises funds to support children and families served by CHI St. Alexius Health. This year, the tournament will help purchase therapeutic equipment and technology utilized in pediatric occupational, physical, and speech therapy treatments.

5-year-old Anna Leingang is the 2015 SAKT ambassador. She has been battling a mystery condition since she was just a few months old. Thanks to the CHI St. Alexius Pediatric Therapy department, Anna is improving her speech, balance, and attention span.

Donating is easy and will do so much for the kids at St. Alexius. You can create a SAKT 2015 fundraising webpage or donate right on the SAKT fundraise website through a team or individual player.
