Did you know? Each year, the Casey Cares Foundation selects an outstanding company and individual for their commitment to it's charity. Recognizing donors who have been instrumental in making their programs successful, the Casey Cares Foundation has named the University of Maryland Athletics Department with the Champion of Children Award for 2013. They will be honored at the 13th Casey Cares Annual Gala on March 23rd, 2013, at the B & O Railroad Museum. The Casey Cares Foundation provides uplifting programs with a special touch to critically ill children and their families.
The Terps have given hundreds of tickets to Casey Cares’ families to enjoy football, soccer, lacrosse and basketball, even inviting several families to their practices to meet their players behind the scenes. For those children who can’t leave the hospital, their teams have visited children at hospitals throughout Baltimore and DC. Their athletes have been an inspiration to Casey Cares children showing them that with hard work they can achieve their dreams.
“Our athletic department is committed to giving back to our community and providing our student-athletes with experiences that help enrich their lives,” said Maryland Athletics Director, Kevin Anderson. “We are proud of our partnership with Casey Cares, and hope to continue to inspire these children and brighten their lives.”
The Casey Cares Foundation is proud to announce that this year the charity has brought smiles to over 10,000 faces of children with life threatening diseases and their families through their programs. Programs are provided to families not just once a lifetime or once a year, but throughout their entire illness and even a year beyond.
