Develop champions by creating a special bond between children with medical conditions and disabilities with local athletic teams as they inspire each other.
Both athlete and child will learn from and inspire each other, creating a greater feeling of purpose that will impact our community and develop future leaders. A sick child will have the chance to be a part of a s sports team and in return, the athletes will discover the benefits of helping others.
Our hospital partners include Cox, Mercy and most recently, Abilities First and the NextStep program. Participating athletic teams include Missouri State University, Drury University, Evangel University, Baptist Bible College and fifteen local and area high schools. Professional teams such as the Springfield Cardinals and the Springfield Demize will also lend a hand.
