As many of you know, I'm playing in the Battle of the Badges game on August 10th to raise money for the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth. The kids in this program have all experienced various struggles and hardship in their childhoods. The emotional and financial burden placed on their families is immeasurable. CHaD helps raise money to open doors for these children and perhaps give them opportunities they might not ever have otherwise.
I am personally representing Chris Hobbs for the second year. Chris is an energetic young kid, even in the face of four brain surgeries since 2008 to remove a 7-cm tumor. You would never know he has faced an uphill battle for so long. Chris loves baseball cards, fire trucks and making people laugh.
I'm proud to represent Team fire and help raise money for the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth. My goal this year is to raise $1,750 for the program. Please consider helping kids like Chris and give them a shot at a better future.
