Kari Batka

We are so excited to be raising money for the 26th Annual Kick A Thon!

I am Kari Batka, one of the original founders of the Kick A Thon event. I have been involved all 26 years. This year I am working with my son Brock and his girlfriend Samantha (Hagedorn) to raise money to benefit our beloved Kick A Thon beneficiaries. In fact, I always know how old the Kick A Thon is because Brock will turn that number every November following the event. I have been so honored to meet and work with so many amazing young people and their wonderful parents along with the dedicated Community Kickers who have so generously given time and money to make Kick A Thon the most awesome and amazing event we could ever have imagined.

We are super passionate about what the KICK A THON represents. Community, Support, Partnerships and KICKING the heck out of cancer year in and year out. Any donation is appreciated. Thanks in advance for your support! Hope to see you on October 4th at East High School when we line up for the 26th year!
