He’s been to the Rose Bowl, the Cotton Bowl, and the Final Four with his Michigan State Spartans in the past two years. He’s a leader among college mascot competitions. He’s even been featured in ESPN SportsCenter commercials.
Imagine the excitement of the Youth Haven children when Sparty took the time to visit them at Youth Haven! It was all hugs, piggyback rides, high fives, and fistbumps as he hung out with the kids and made them feel special. Children who often feel forgotten and overlooked had his full attention. And they loved every minute of it!
It’s sure to be an experience they will remember for a lifetime. Our hope is that it also inspired some of them to begin thinking about a college education in the future.
Thank you, Sparty, for recognizing that these disadvantaged kids were worth your time, and for making them feel valued!
