What is the St. Alexius Kickball Tournament (SAKT)?
It’s Kickball!  Who doesn’t love kickball? The game we all played as kids is now the center of a fundraising event for kids! Proceeds from the round robin kickball tournament go to improve patient care at St. Alexius Medical Center Children’s Center. In 2012 and 2013 funds helped us purchase new technology and renovate the pediatric unit into an imaginative town named after St. Alexius’ official mascot, “Alex The Cat.” The purpose of Alex Town is to enhance a child’s hospital experience during his or her visit.

Our Future
Kids are the heart and soul of our community and future. That’s why St. Alexius Medical Center has equipped our Children’s Center with only the best people and technology to take care of them.

Our Future

  • 9-bed unit (7 beds with small town theme and 2 beds for older children)
  • Small town theme complete with fire station, police station, toy store, pet shop, zoo and more
  • Street for walking or riding bike
  • Working stop light
  • Playroom
  • New monitors so each room can serve as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)

“The nurses and staff are great at St. Alexius. They really invested a lot of time and care into his condition.” -Eric, whose 9 year old son was treated by St. Alexius Children’s Center staff, nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists.
