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.
