The 7th Annual Camp and Combine

June 25, 2016 Killeen, Texas

On Saturday campers and local celebrity football players filled Leo Buckley Stadium, for the 7th time.  Children had the chance to learn from their local stars of the community.

Earlier in the day Johnny “Lam” Jones, Romance Taylor, and Roy Miller visited McLane Children’s Hospital to visit the teen center where Roy Miller was surprised by his jersey being prominently displayed in the teen lounge.  The group learned how the important the lounge  was to the kids and talked about how special the children were that they visited. RM McLane'sMiller shared some thoughts: “what struck me the most was that some kids were on hospice and made it their life goal to improve the teen center, how selfless, courageous, wise, and inspiring….Our buddy that got in the car accident (from a drunk driver) and checked on everyone else in his family before realizing he had a broken leg. RMIt can be easy to forget, how we sometimes take parts of life for granted, but when you get around the personalities of these teens, you realize they truly taking advantage of the most important qualities a human can posses; being fully present in time. They smile through it all and I will always remember that.” The Accumulative Advantage Foundation will be donating some games to McLane Children’s Hospital’s teen center. If you are interested in donating as well email us at kidsadvantage@gmail.com.

McLane Children’s Hospital Visit

kcentv.com – KCEN HD – Waco, Temple, and Killeen

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!

 

 

 

5th Annual Cen-Tex Camp and Combine

350 campers filled Leo Buckley Stadium, July 11th and 12th, to participate in the Accumulative Advantage Foundation’s 5th Annual Football and Cheer-leading Camp. Kids had the opportunity to learn from over 15 local, NFL Players and Pro Cheerleaders! With so much support from volunteers, NFL PLAY 60, and some local companies, campers were able to enjoy fun activities while taking away life lessons, which go far beyond athletic competition. Kid’s were challenged to be disciplined, work hard, including cleaning up after themselves. “Killeen Ball” a game of football where every kid gets the chance to play QB and catch the ball was played, campers watched and supported the cheerleaders during their performances, ice cream and barbeque meals were provided to campers, and children got one-on-one time with our professional athletes. Our citizenship award was given away to 32 campers including 6 fastest man trophies.

This year a heart on our camps logo displayed the name: Donna. Donna helped build our foundation and had a sincere passion for the kids of Killeen. In 2013 Donna Passed away.

Donna Fischbach, you are forever in our thoughts and hearts, we celebrate and our reminded of you every time a child smiles at our camp. We are forever in debt to you, your vision lives on, rest in peace. Thank you for helping us evolve the camp to where it is today.
