Thank you to the sponsors, participants, volunteers and fans of the eighth annual SAKT (St. Alexius Kickball Tournament) held Saturday, September 28, 2019 at Clem Kelley Softball Complex in Bismarck.

With your help we raised more than $36,000 in proceeds, which will purchase new infant warming tables, ensuring our littlest patients are extra comfortable.
