…thanks to all the great folks who have been sharing with us!

This weekend, new HOPE participant Ja’Quan was a special guest at the Ben Roethlisberger Football ProCamp where he was awarded with the Coach ‘Hep’ Don’t Quit Award! He received this prestigious award for his resiliency, leadership and skill shown on and off of the field. Ja’Quan is the oldest of three siblings who he works hard to be a good role model for. On March 27th, 2019, Ja’Quans family unexpectedly lost their father. This unlikely event caused Ja’Quan to dig deep to persevere as he, overnight, became the man of the house.

Aside from this award, Ja’Quan ran the fastest 400mm dash out of all 300 youth who attended the camp! Now that’s speed! 🏃🏾 🏃🏾🏃🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

Thank you Ben Roethlisberger and Tickets for Kids for this amazing opportunity. 🏈 🏆 #GoJaQuanGo Hope For Tomorrow, Inc.
