AS we already mentioned, the basketball event that helped MDream was a complete success. In celebration, we decided to put together a video recap to show everyone what it was like to be there and all the fun that everyone had.
Enjoy the video and know that Athletic Supporters is there to provide future events for causes.
The first athletic charity event was a complete success.
The children of MDream benefited from a tremendous amount of support through donations, volunteer work and participation.
The event started with a BBQ and a gathering. Tequilaz, a local Mexican style restaurant, donated pulled-pork and coleslaw that was an instant favorite. From there, everyone was then invited to participate in the basketball event or cheer on the teams.
During the athletic event, those in the stands were treated to cupcakes provided from MDream Confectionery. MDream Confectionery was launched recently by a few high school girls with MDream. They provide cupcakes and baked goods.
The event ended with tired athletes and one winning team. This team was given prizes and prize money. Tequilaz also donated gift cards to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners as well. Included in the winnings were raffle drawings and prizes for best/funniest dressed team.
The event was a success and we are excited to continue the success with more events and donations.
Only a week away from Athletic Supporters holding their first event. As I already mentioned, we will be supporting MDream and providing them with an 80% contribution from all money raised. I personally don’t expect the world, but I’m hopeful that we can provide a few more happy days for the kids involved.
Anyways, if you can’t make it to Korea and still want to be apart of this, go HERE and DONATE! We would love to have as much support as possible.
You can find all the details of the event on this PAGE.
A picture of the gym that will hold the first Athletic Supporters volunteer event.
We are holding a 3 on 3 basketball event to benefit a Korean orphanage. Proceeds will go to MDream and their continuous effort to help children in need.
If you would like to be apart of this (and can’t make the event) please donate and KNOW that 80% will directly benefit Mdream. The remaining will go towards the continuous effort of hosting like events.
Athletic Supporters will hold it’s first event come October in South Korea. We are expecting a nice turn-out and will provide an educational message to support volunteering and conservation causes through athletics. Stay tuned as we will provide more information about the event.
Enthusiasm can be a motivating factor for personal drive and success. Bob Ramsey has certainly excelled within the realm of basketball and the sports world by focusing his enthusiasm to accomplish his goals. As a young man, Ramsey had ambitions to play basketball and baseball in a high setting. While in college he did just that. He helped Lindenwold’s basketball team win the ’77-78 Regional Championship award and would later graduate from the University. From there, he went on and focused his enthusiasm into sports broadcasting. He explains that “the jolt of playing drives his enthusiasm while broadcasting.”
It is in the world of broadcasting where Ramsey (or Rammer as he is called on 101.1 ESPN radio) has really shined. He has captured numerous awards and has created quite a following. He has excelled with Saint Louis University (SLU) as a sportscaster for the Billikens and was recently inducted into their Hall of Fame—which is no easy task. Along with this award, he has also won the Missouri Sportscaster of the Year award an astounding 5 times as well as two Emmy’s. Watch the induction HERE.
His enthusiasm is also a drive for conservation efforts. He prides himself with doing what he can for conservation, and notes that even the little things can be considered big. His wife and three children recycle and frequently visit state parks and participate in outdoor sports. His family has a special interest in the Continental Divide trail in Colorado and the Colorado River. They visit Colorado every summer and have gathered attention, time and funds for the protection and conservation of the area. In addition, Bob Ramsey has spoken at the Missouri Botanical Garden and various schools about conservation efforts.
His love of basketball and passion for the outdoors has been a drive for his achievements and success. It is this type of enthusiasm that has been beneficial for Ramsey and his family.
