Kickball

In 1996, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids held the first “Kick Butts Day,” a day of action for young people to speak out against the tobacco industry and advocate for policies to reduce youth smoking. This event continued annually, with thousands of young people and groups participating every year. In addition to Kick Butts Day, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids’ youth advocacy program expanded, providing training and advocacy opportunities for young people year-round.
Over the ensuing years, the U.S. indeed ‘Kicked Butts’ and youth smoking dropped dramatically — but a new range of addictive and dangerous tobacco products like e-cigarettes emerged, threatening this remarkable progress. In 2019, Kick Butts Day rebranded to Take Down Tobacco National Day of Action — a reflection of both how far we’ve come and how far we still need to go to achieve the first tobacco-free generation.

Join us each April for our Annual Kickball Tournament!

Flag Football

The Flag Football Tournament raises money to provide Christmas gifts for the children of people in treatment for substance use disorder in Northeast Tennessee. Every dollar raised will go toward this project.

Join us each year in November for our Flag Football Tournament!

Wiffle Ball with Appalachian Banner Academy

Appalachian Banner Academy is a school for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We see behaviors as communications and efforts to connect, instead of an inconvenience.

Join us each September to support Appalachian Banner in the annual Wiffle Ball Tournament!

 
Basketball

Many people come into sober living houses starting over in life. This means they could be coming from treatment facilities, incarceration, or homelessness. Paying moving fees and rent, buying groceries and paying for basic needs can be overwhelming and sometimes impossible. The goal of this Basketball Fundraiser is to raise money to help those coming into treatment to get back on their feet in recovery. 

Join us in May for a 3 vs 3 Basketball Tournament!
