Former Bear Greg Olsen Hosts Kickball Tourney

Chicago tourney raises funds for cancer organizations


Even when they've moved on to other teams, former Bears still seem to get a kick out of coming back to Chicago.

Carolina Panther tight end Greg Olsen will return to the city of his former employer on June 30 to host the 9th annual Kicks for a Cure kickball tournament in Grant Park.

The event is billed as the largest kickball tournament in the world and raises funds for Olsen's cancer charity, Receptions for Research.

Matt Forte and Indianapolis Colt Drew Stanton will be playing on Olsen's team this year.

Sixty teams are participating in the tournament, which is held in conjunction with TMC, a division of CH Robinson. 

Registration is already full, but spectators can purchase day passes for $50 which allows entrance into the Hutchinson Field event, as well as food and beverage throughout the day.
