NORTH TONAWANDA – The 14th annual KanJam World Championship, featuring the flying disc game that originated in North Tonawanda, is scheduled for Saturday.

The tournament begins at 9 a.m. at Gratwick Hose picnic grounds, 110 Ward Road, and continues until the last team standing at 6 p.m. More than 100 teams are registered, including last year’s winners.

Proceeds will help support #LipsitzStrong, to assist in the awareness of esophageal cancer, as well as the North Tonawanda Police Athletic League, which provides two $500 scholarships annually to high school seniors and provides donations for school-related extracurricular functions.

KanJam, which started out as a garbage can disc tournament in the 1990s, is now widely sold and used in thousands of schools as part of their physical education curriculum.
