I will be a participant at the 8th annual Free Throws for Kids event where our team will shoot 500 free throws on April 9th at Lakota West High School. The event raises money for children and their families at Cincinnati Children's Hospital and Ronald McDonald House.
Specifically, Free Throws for Kids does four very special and unique things:
(1) Surprise over 1,000 kids and families throughout the year at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital with care packages. The packages have comfort items like a fleece blanket and journal, plus gift cards for fuel, food, and the hospital cafeteria.
(2) Donate $3,000 each month to the Cincinnati Ronald McDonald House for salad bar food. Each weekday, over 177 families now have a healthier eating option because of the FTFK salad bar & ongoing food donation.
(3) Grant $10,000 to Cincinnati's Liberty branch social services department to help kids and families with real-time, immediate assistance.
(4) Donate $500 each month for a "FTFK Care Cart" for families at Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
These simple things in life, we may take for granted, become a big challenge when a child is hospitalized, and families need help. Thru Free Throws for Kids, we are making a very positive impact.
This year, with your help, the event goal is to raise over $85,000. Your support, in any amount, would be greatly appreciated! Donations can be made online or by check.
