Kickball tournament raises awareness of child abuse – The Troy Messenger


The Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center has partnered with the Troy Resilience Project to host the Pike Regional CAC Kickball Tournament at the Troy Recreation Center on April 8 as part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Kaley Green, director of the Pike Regional CAC, said the kickball tournament was played as a way to raise awareness of child abuse and also as a community “fun” breeder.

“The kickball tournament was a great event,” Green said. “Troy Regional Medical Center was the big winner. We had five teams to participate. Jumps of Joy bounce house, 2 Brothers Frozen Treats and Say It Hot Dogs provided food for the tournament. Troy Parks and Recreation provided the football fields for the day. The weather was beautiful and we had a successful day.

Green said the kickball tournament proved to be a great source of fun, raised awareness about child abuse and also the services the Pike Regional CAC provides to abused children and their families.

“We look forward to hosting this event again next year,” said Green.

The Pike Regional CAC always has child abuse awareness t-shirts, pinwheels and blue ribbons for sale.

“We invite businesses, churches, clubs, organizations and homeowners to join us in showing their support as we continue to raise awareness of child abuse in the last two weeks of April,” Green said. .

T-shirts, reels and tapes are available at Pike Regional CAC, 118 West Orange Street, Troy or by calling 334-670-0487.
