Just wanted to share something with you that I am very passionate about, our YOUTH. I often daydream and think about what my Griffin would do when he grew up, heck I think about what he would be like entering the Middle School this year or what sport he would be playing. A statistic that always resonates with me is that Pediatric Cancer on average: a child loses 67 years to spend on this earth, laughing, smiling, but also leaving their mark they were destined to on this world.
So when the students of Syracuse University Sports Venue Event Management Class of 2019 reached out to GG and wanted to host the Orange Guardians Kickoff, I immediately said YES!! These students are our future...this event is not an easy event to pull off but they are doing it because of their drive and their passion for helping our community. Each year that Griffin's Guardians has been in existence the need in our community has increased. Events like these, run by our future leaders, not only allow us to help MORE families but it allows us to make a BIGGER impact on each family.
Did you know that in 2018 Griffin's Guardians gave back to our local CNY families over $110,000 in financial support? We made sure these families had reliable transportation to and from the hospital, we made sure they had the prescriptions they needed, we made sure their house bills were taken care of and we even stopped into the hospital to meet these families and to bring a little sunshine to them. We know this support will increase even more 2019!
This Orange Guardians Kickoff will highlight Coach Dino Babers and how he has brought a community together through the SU football program, it will show the strength of Cancer Survivor and SU Football player, Rex Culpepper and it will show the determination of a family whose mission is to carry on the legacy of their little boy who continues to inspire a community.
