Kings Island Kicks Cancer

« Go Back


While Kings Island specializes in thrill-inducing attractions, the park is also pretty good at raising awareness and funds for research and care in the fight against cancers affecting men, women and children.

During Kings Island Kicks Cancer days from July 24 through August 23, park guests can make an impact in the caring and cure of cancer by purchasing a soccer ball and kicking it into the park's fountain on International Street for a chance to win a brand new 2015 Honda Civic courtesy of Performance Kings Honda. 

Soccer balls will be $5 for one and $20 for five. For individuals that cannot make it out to the park during Kings Island Kicks Cancer days, you can still help make an impact by purchasing soccer balls online starting later this month. Our Kings Island Kicks Cancer team will kick your ball into the fountain for you for a chance to win the car! 

Net proceeds from soccer ball sales benefit The Dragonfly Foundation, Melanoma Know More and Pink Ribbon Girls

The Dragonfly Foundation's mission is to bring comfort and joy to kids and young adults (up to age 30) who undergo treatment for cancer at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. They provide distractions and support that ease the pain and fear these young patients and their families experience on a daily basis.

Melanoma Know More is striving to reduce the impact of melanoma through awareness, education, support of medical research and assistance to persons affected by melanoma.


Pink Ribbon Girls mission is to provide personalized support to young women throughout all phases of the breast cancer journey. They accomplish this through education, outreach, awareness and one-on-one support to women and their families.
