For over 10 years, Pro Spirit Inc. has happily participated in supporting Heroes of Children. Heroes for Children is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization that advocates for and provides financial and social assistance to families with children (0-22 years of age) battling cancer. Since 2004, Heroes for Children has provided $6.5 million to over 6,600 Texas families in need through our financial and social assistance programs. There is no other organization that provides direct and immediate assistance to families with such ease when it comes to restoring normalcy and bringing comfort through each family’s journey. Heroes for Children is co-founded by Larrisa Linton.
Traditionally, Pro Spirit and our families support HFC by adopting 2 to 3 families every year for Christmas as recommended by Heroes for Children. Pressured with unknown medical expenses, we help remove the financial burden of the holidays but providing Christmas trees, decorations and gifts for the children of the families. We also provide the families with financial assistance through the unbelievable support and donations of our Pro Spirit athlete families.
This year, Pro Spirit is participating in a very special Heroes for Children as we have selected to adopt Lilly Linton and her family as we support them with Lilly’s diagnosis. This is the first year that we have adopted a known family and it is very special to us as Lilly is one of our own within our Pro Spirit Family of athletes.
