Tulsa Men's Soccer Players and Staff Participate in Make-A-Wish Send Off
Sept. 21, 2012
Tulsa, Okla. - Eight representatives from the Tulsa men's soccer team helped send Kameron, a seven-year old girl with Sickle Cell Anemia, on her magic Flight to Disney World through the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Head Coach Tom McIntosh, Assistant Coaches Justin Cook and Terry Boss, Graduate Assistant Eric DeFreitas, and players Wayne Farmer, Michael Murray, Mark Pais, Joshua Parker and Jon Wright all greeted the family. They presented her with a signed soccer ball and jersey, TU t-shirt and soccer poster before her flight to Disney World on Friday, Sept. 21st.
"I told the guys yesterday, I think we don't realize the positive impact we can have in the roles that we have," McIntosh said. "Anytime you can be a part of something like this and have a positive impact on people's lives, you should. We've been doing this for five or six years now. These things mean a lot to us, and in addition whenever you attend these types of events they remind you how fortunate we are. People are battling things. Our student-athletes might get bogged down with tests, bad games or whatever, but it brings life into perspective. It is great for the kids that are going on the Make-A-Wish flight, but it is an opportunity for our student-athletes to learn and grow."
