Can Dodgeball save lives? We think so.

This winter, on college campuses across the country, teams will compete, spin throws will fly, glory will be grabbed, and one team in each region will be crowned the Champions of the first-ever Pnock Out Pneumonia Tournament!



Yet every single team will contribute to an all-too-important cause, the fight against childhood pneumonia. This year, 2 million children will die from this treatable, preventable disease. That’s more than HIV/AIDS, malaria, and measles combined! Money raised by Pnock Out Pneumonia participants will go towards providing children in developing countries with the health services they need to survive this forgotten killer.


We are looking for a number of committed college students to help us make these games successful. From organizing an entire regional tournament, to playing on a team, to volunteering your time on the day of the games, there is a way for everyone to get involved.


The tournament will take place in 16 cities across the United States. The cities are:

Ann Arbor, MI; Atlanta, GA; Austin, TX; Boston, MA; Chicago, IL; Columbus, OH; Durham/Chapel Hill, NC; Greenville, NC; Los Angeles, CA; Minneapolis, MN; New York, NY; Philadelphia, PA; Seattle, WA; St. Louis, MO; Tempe, AZ; and Washington, DC.


Visit us at to learn more about the Tournaments in the 16 participating cities or email us for more information about how you can take part in the first annual games to Pnock Out Pneumonia!

So lace up. Suit up. Grab your friends, and throw down.
