Our smallest teammate, has the biggest heart!

You know when you have a teammate who can inspire you just by looking at him. Or maybe you know that there is someone who will cheer you on, no matter what they have going on? For the past year and a half, we have been fortunate to have that type of teammate.

Now our teammate needs some cheering on from us. Benny Waters (pictured above) joined our program through our participation with the Friends of Jaclyn organization. I have started to find it amusing that they claim that "we adopted" Benny. In reality, Benny and his family, adopted us!

Benny has been struggling as of late, as you can read from his Mom, Lisa's, blog update.
Benny's Journal

I am hoping that many of you will help us as we try and bring some smiles to Benny's face while he fights with the heart of a true champion.

Please leave messages on his Caringbridge page: . He is in hospice and would love to see messages from you.

Benny's Message Board

If you would like to "mail" him something (card, etc) Please use the following address, and we will make sure that it gets hand delivered to him by some of our players.
