Kids who are busy with extracurricular activities are less likely to get involved in drugs alcohol and gangs. They are also more likely to stay on track academically.
That’s why a local group is trying to raise funds to help kids in need stay active and involved. News 92 FM’s Carolyn Campbell has more:
Janet Hayes knows that one person can make a big difference. When she was a single mother of three struggling to pay for extracurricular activities, her neighbor Will Askew stepped in to help pay for her kids to continue things like soccer, karate and swimming.
To continue his legacy of unconditional love, Hayes and her family started Will’s Kids. Hayes says our entire community is better when we breathe life into the dreams of a child in need.
You can help Will’s Lids at the first annual fundraiser “Hungry Games” on Tuesday, February 19 at 6 p.m. at the Nathaniel Center in Kingwood. Area restaurants will compete to prepare the best signature meal for those attending. Ticket information is available on http://www.willskids.org.
