SAKT

   

What is the St. Alexius Kickball Tournament (SAKT)?
The game we all played as children is the center of a fundraising event for children! SAKT 2016 is a one-day, coed kickball tournament that raises funds to help our precious babies. In this region 60 percent of all babies born are delivered at CHI St. Alexius Health Bismarck’s The Birth Place. Of these newborns, 15 percent will spend their first few days, weeks or months in CHI St. Alexius Health’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Proceeds from SAKT 2016 will assist our NICU babies and their families by purchasing new technology and equipment to advance the region’s neonatal care.

Saturday, September 24
8 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Best Uniform Challenge
Compete for the title of “Best Uniform” in three categories:

We want teams to get creative. However, uniforms must be appropriate as this is a fundraiser for children.
