Local Football Player Raises Funds for Variety

Westminster Christian Academy's Andrew Kempen is a true hero. He wanted to make a difference in someone's life, and thought of our Variety Kids. This past Saturday, Andrew and Variety Woman Kelly Gross teamed up to raise funds and awareness at a home football game. For just $5 apiece, fans entering the game could purchase a bracelet in support of Variety and Westminster football. All proceeds will go towards one goal - purchasing an adaptive bike for a kid like Logan, who was in attendance at Saturday's game.

Logan is 12 years old, and has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Two years ago, Variety provided him with an adaptive bike created just for him. This bike allows him to be independent, learn new skills and just have fun! On Saturday, he was thrilled to show off his speedster to the crowd, which included his family. He pedaled around the field, and even got to pass through a cheer tunnel!

Together, Andrew, Kelly and Logan’s efforts have raised $1,000 thus far to go towards a new bike for a Variety Kid. Andrew has also started a funding page so that those who could not attend the game can now donate online.
