“Our staff and athletes would like the opportunity to give back to kids that are not given the opportunity that most people take for granted daily,” said Gil Baber, Bryan Adams athletic director. “Every person knows someone who has been effected by this tragic disease and hopefully with our assistance through this program we can help children less fortunate have a more fulfilling childhood.  If each person would take the time to donate whatever they are capable of, we can make a huge difference in kids’ lives.”
