  • Last year we had 23 teams and raised $43,828 (our goal was 10 teams and $10,000) for over 200 kids & their families in the Pediatric, Neonatal & Cardiac Intensive Care Units at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.  We also donated a much needed commercial-grade salad & fruit bar (along with the funds to stock it for 2 months) to the Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House.
  • This year there are 46 teams!  With 46 teams, sponsorship & general donations our goal is to raise $75,000!!!
  • The money raised is used to show love & hope by surprising the kids & their families with gift baskets that include gas cards for the many trips to and from the hospital, cafeteria gift cards for the day-after-day meals at the cafeteria, toiletries, Dream Dinner frozen meals for family members at home and more. These simple responsibilities, we take for granted, become a big challenge and these families need help. Thru Free Throws for Kids, we are making a positive impact on the amount of time a family can spend together.

Words from a family last year….

“I just wanted to say thank you for what you have done!  It is truly a blessing to me and my family.  It’s good to know that there are still people in this world that care and are willing to help!  Because of what you have done, you have allowed me to be able to see my other children that I have been away from for six months!”  – The Tucker’s & Wright’s
