Kick4Humanity – Good Times, While Giving Back

Posted in Event with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2010 by monskeez

iMa & SurfAid hosted the 1st Annual Kick4Humanity soccer tournament, a charity event where the surf industry came together to battle it out on the soccer field. The event was an awesome opportunity for people from the surf industry to interact, spend a fun day in the sun and most importantly raise funds for charity. A total of $4,300 was raised for SurfAid in Kick4Humanity’s inaugural year.

The Surfshot team edged out Laguna Surf & Sport 2-0 in the final, becoming this year’s champion. Firewire Surfboards finished in 3rd place to round out the top three. RVCA was our top fundraising team and won the best spirit award, while the best effort award went to SurfAid’s own Javier Guerrero.

“It means a lot for SurfAid International to see such amazing support from the action sport community at an event like Kick4Humanity. SurfAid’s programs are designed around communities coming together to increase their health and well-being and bring positive change. Although very far from the SurfAid’s programs held in isolated areas off the coast of western Sumatra in Indonesia, and in support of what happened on Saturday in San Juan Capistrano for as people gathered to support a great cause through the joy of soccer.” – Javier Guerrero, Director, SurfAid International USA

As part of our annual community program we wanted surf companies to involve their employees in a worthy cause, while having fun. The 1st annual Kick4Humanity tournament proved to be a successful and fun way to raise funds for SurfAid and we hope to see more teams involved next year. Good times were had by all. To see what I’m talking about check out the pictures below.

This event could not have happened without the support of the surf industry & those that participated. Teams that battled it out this year were RVCA, Surfshot, Surfer Mag, Jedidiah, SurfAid, Firewire Surfboards, Volcom, Laguna Surf and Sport, SoCal Skate & Surf, Transworld Biz, & Endemic. Hope to see you all again next year!

We also want to give a special thanks to all our supporters and sponsors: GoPro, New Era, EarthPack, Bo Bridges, Guayaki, Optimal Nutrition, Primo Beer, Sambazon, Pull-In, PopChips, Archie’s Ice Cream, FUEL TV, Shaka Laka, Hint Water, Sex Wax, Function Drinks, Barefoot, C-Siren Spa, La Casa Camino Hotel, The Roof Top Bar, Reef, & Togo Beach.

We are looking forward to next year!
