Judges and Awards

Community leaders judge the relay races while a local radio personality gives a running commentary on the wild, crazy antics of racers and their cheering squads.


In addition to awards for fastest times, HUMOROUS AWARDS are presented in categories such as Cutest Costume, Mascot Challenge, Most Spirited and Oops!, which is for near accidents as kickers try to keep wayward cans on the street and out of the crowd.



Adding color and fun are costumed mascots from sports teams, corporate sponsors and teams.



The day of Kick the Can, enthusiastic volunteers check in the teams, help participants enter raffles, direct guests to the event’s lunch spot, and cheer on the relay racers.


Food Donations

Most of the donations we receive from the food industry are fresh and frozen foods. To complement these generous donations, we need the community to donate nonperishable foods. The most requested items are canned fruits and vegetables, boxed or canned soups and stews, canned fish and meats, boxed or canned juices, cereal, peanut butter (no glass jars), boxed pasta and rice.
