We did it again! A very special Christmas gift drive, promoted by Midwest Sports Academy. As a community we helped fill Santa's workshop taking place at the Ronald McDonald House® near Central DuPage Hospital. When you child has cancer or another complex medical need, a parent doesn’t have time to shop for their Christmas gifts. They're lucky if they find 20 extra minutes to catch-up on sleep. I know personally it’s 24/7 care and an emotional exhaustion to say the least. It was an honor to help organize, collect and deliver these gifts. The Ronald McDonald House keeps families with very sick children together in a ‘home away from home’ and close to resources they need to survive.
Because of beautiful people in the community, friends and family, we collected a total of 88 gifts and $355.00 in gift cards. WOW! We beat last years delivery by triple! And we plan to beat this years total in 2017! If your interested in helping us next year please let me know as we could use the helping hands. :)
A very special thank you goes out to South Elgin High School JV Dance, Mrs. McIntosh, Ellis Middle School, Coach Cook, my family and my RunBuds. We could not have done this great without you!
Our hearts are grateful and we know Santa’s workshop at the Ronald McDonald House is now filled with love!

Midwest Sports Academy Practicing the Gift of Giving by Donating Thanksgiving Baskets
I want to thank everyone that support us with the Thanksgiving Baskets. Because of people like you we were able to reach our goal this year and more. We feed 102 families this year. Goal was to feed only 100 families. We really appreciate all the support we received for this event. We served the U-46 school district, District 300 and Aurora community.
"I truly appreciate your friendship and loyalty towards the things in making a difference in others lives".
Thank you from,
