Stars come out for Greg Olsen's kickball tourney

Bears tight end Greg Olsen's charity kickball tournament Saturday at Grant Park quickly turned into star-studded event.

As Brian Urlacher chilled in a golf cart waiting his turn to kick, actor Vince Vaughn made an appearance alongside comedian Kevin James. Olsen, Vaughn, James, and running back Matt Forte all congregated under the shade, sharing a few laughs as Vaughn razzed the amateur kickball players vying for the title.

Olsen politely declined to talk about football, but he addressed his mother's battle and even talked a little LeBron James in the following video clips (more after the jump).

But the star of stars was Olsen's mother, Susan, who was Saturday's designated pitcher and a nine-year breast-cancer survivor. She is the inspiration behind the Olsen family's Reception for Research foundation.

"We're happy to have her out here after everything she's been through," Greg Olsen said. "It means a lot."

Olsen partnered with TMC, a Chicago-based division of the $7.6 billion global transportation and logistics services provider, C. H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc., to organize the "Kicks for a Cure" event.
