For the fourth year in a row, boys at Timber Trail teamed up with their moms for a kickball tournament at Coyote Ridge Park. Roughly 260 players gathered to play ball, eat dinner, and have a great time.
“When we started this event four years ago, we wanted something boys could do with their moms,” said Jenny Hanna, who chaired the event. “I think it’s really great for the boys to see their moms doing something active and we wanted to have an event that was a lot of fun.”
In addition to playing the game, players listened to music from the Denver DJ Daddy and ate dinner from Chik-fil-A and Bluebell Ice Cream. After playing, boys could assemble a first-aid kit with supplies from Concentra Urgent Care. Brandon Linn Orthodontics was also a sponsor of the event.
