Charles Sorensen was honored at the 6th Annual Central TX Camp & Combine for his dedication to K.I.S.D. athletics and the 6th Annual Camp. His efforts in bringing the camp off the ground was honored by the foundation and children of Central Texas. Charlie hesitated to accept a warm round of applause but eventually embraced the moment when his campers, of six years strong, cheered the man that poured his blood, sweat, and tears into the camp. Charlie we are very appreciative of all you do for us, the late hours, non-stop motor you have when it comes to doing your part in the camp. With Charlie our camp is more than another day at work, he truly desires to see the camp successful and we were proud to have been on this journey with you. “life has a many different sides to it but you just work and persevere through the tough times, when there are good days you cherish them, you never take them for granted”-Charles Sorensen. It is our hope to pass this way of thinking way to appreciate life down to our campers. Thank you Charlie.

Killeen’s Mayor Scott Cosper came to the opening ceremony of the 6th Annual Camp & Combine to award the Accumulative Foundation with the prestigious proclamation for the efforts put forward by many for the last 6 years. Our players, staff, and volunteers have worked so hard and are honored by the camp and the city’s stamp of recognition.
The always “laid back” Roy Miller celebrated with joy and was overwhelmed by the award. Roy explains his feelings for the proclamation, “This proves that together a community can do great things. I am so happy that our team is rewarded for their work! They deserve this! This camp officially goes down in the history books of Killeen that July 10th and 11th is ours!”. We are proud of this achievement and look forward to more milestones. Please join our efforts as we are always looking to build our team of successful role models and volunteers to improve our outreach to the community. Please email us at email@example.com with your skill sets that you think can help. We look forward to working with you!
NFL players woke up July 11th, 2015 with one thing on their minds: giving back. That is exactly what they did first stopping by McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple Texas to visit kids who were in unfortunate situations. Executive Director of the Accumulative Advantage Foundation Veshell Willis shared that, “this is the “camp” for our children who cannot make it out to our football and cheer camp today. Every child deserves a little fun it was great to see the players and (Killeen) Mayor Cosper put a smile on the kids faces”. NFL players signed autographs cards from their football camp for children as they traveled room to room. Brandon Joiner former Cincinnati Bengal, local football star said, “Anything I can do for these kids to make them smile under these circumstances does more for me then it can ever do for them, this is an honor.” The Accumulative Advantage Foundation based in Killeen is proud to have these NFL players as leaders in our military communities representing the advisory board of directors of the foundation. We are truly blessed that the right men have such a large platform to give back to the communities they love. We thank you McLane Children’s Hospital for the opportunity!
