Portland, June 20th, 2014. They kicked it up a notch at this fundraiser to benefit kids. The winners of the kickball tournament were a dream team from the offices of the Trail Blazers and Timbers/Thorns organizations (aka Timbzers). They beat a team from Adidas US by a score of 3 to 1. Adidas US did win the spirit award. The Playworks Corporate Kickball Fundraiser is an employee engagement event and benefit for Playworks Pacific Northwest.
