Firehouse was honored to participate in the first annual Playworks Indiana Corporate Kickball event on April 23. Eight teams from local businesses met at IUPUI’s Carroll Stadium (home field of the Indy Eleven soccer team) for a series of kickball games to benefit the Playworks mission. Founded in 1996, Playworks’ goal is to transform recess and the school day with safe and healthy play so teachers can teach and kids can learn.
Playworks Indiana’s Executive Director, Marc McAleavey, led the event and kept everyone in good spirits. Firehouse lost our first-round game, but rallied in the consolation rounds with 2 wins. Well, in all honesty, both of those games were ties. We resolved them the same way Playworks encourages kids to resolve disputes on the playground – Rock-Paper-Scissors. For our day of efforts, we were awarded the “You’re So Adequate” trophy. As the main corporate sponsor, Salesforce fielded three teams, one of which won the grand championship. But, local schools are the real winners with Playworks coaches providing organized recess activities that are safe, inclusive and, most of all, FUN!
