Chronically/Seriously ill child:
Adopt a child as part of a sports team of their choice. Surround the child with a TEAM of KIDS of their age and gender, who through their genuine, sincere LOVE and OUTREACH may be the special HOPE to bring our honored child and teammate, the MIRACLE that maybe he/she may overcome the terrible illness. Minimally, be the recipient of a special gift the Team children have paid for by their hard work and ingenuity.
Through experience, the SPORTS TEAM will learn three essential life lessons.
- By putting the needs of their adopted teammate before their own, they will learn the importance of Service before Self. Kids will gain CONFIDENCE by realizing that THEY can raise the money, spend the time, share their heart, and ultimately accomplish something “bigger than themselves.”
- By reaching out, identifying, and understanding their adopted teammate’s feelings and difficulties, they will learn the importance of having Empathy for Others.
- By working to accomplish the same goal/mission, the children will learn that great things can happen when ALL are working together, teaching the importance of TEAMWORK.
