Multiple Teams · Northmont Boys Basketball Team Visits Children’s Medical Center


NORTHMONT BOYS BASKETBALL TEAM HELPS KIDS “BOUNCE BACK”

On Wednesday, January 14th, the Northmont Boys Basketball Team went to Dayton Children’s Medical Center to participate in an extremely worthy cause of helping kids “bounce back” from their illnesses. The team delivered gifts, toys, and clothing that had been donated by fans at their home games during the month of December. In addition to the donations, t-shirts were sold to help raise funds for the kids at Children’s Medical Center. As a result, the Boys Basketball Team was able to present Children’s Medical Center with a check for $450. Head Coach, Collin Abels, had this to say about the experience, “Jodi Taylor (mother of player Jarell Taylor) approached me in November to see if we were interested in participating in a community service project, and I thought it was a tremendous idea. We sometimes forget that there are WAY more important things going on outside of the sports world, and this was an eye-opening experience for the players. The joy on the faces of the patients, and the subsequent reaction of excitement from our players, is something I will never forget!” Children’s Medical Center representative Lori McCallen was very appreciative of the team taking time out of their day to visit with the patients and the generous donations of money and gifts. Lori had this to say, “we cannot thank the Northmont Basketball Team enough for all they’ve done for Children’s Medical Center. Things like this mean the world to our patients and truly brightens their day. This is something that many of them will never forget.” The trip also had a profound effect on the players. Senior captain, Ryan Smith, had this to say about his experience, “this was a very humbling experience, it’s always a great feeling to go out of your way to make a difference in other people’s lives.” Senior captain, Jordan Lowery, added this about the trip, “I hope our trip to Children’s brightened the day of those patients. One thing is for sure, they were the highlight of my day. This is just another example that they are things that are much more important than playing basketball.” Again, a special thanks goes out to Jodi Taylor for organizing this awesome event.
