Serving with compassion and grace
I want you to meet my cousin, Ashton Welker. Ashton was born with Down’s Syndrome and sadly passed away in 2021. In her short life, Ashton literally touched thousands of people. She always seemed to smile, even though she endured heart surgeries and medical procedures. Ashton was a fighter and she was an inspiration to me.
One of my core values is to live a life of compassion and a life of giving. Ashton’s Army is a way I can show compassion and give hope to families who have been impacted by Down’s Syndrome. A portion of your entrance fee to my camp will go to support this effort.
Thank you for attending my camp, and know that you are my partner in showing compassion and giving hope to children like Ashton and their families.
I am super excited to announce that this year’s Jadin Booth Elite Camp will be donating a portion of the registration fees to help fight Pediatric Cancer. Cancer is something that has taken so many lives and Jadin has had direct relationships with people who have been diagnosed with it. Each year in the U.S. there are an estimated 15,780 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age who are diagnosed with cancer. Approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday.
The Jadin Booth Elite Camp strives to make an impact that is larger than basketball. Jadin hopes this camp serves as a resource not only for the kids who participate in the camp but for kids around the world who may not be able to participate due to various circumstances. Families who are affected with cancer are not just dealing with cancer. All the medical treatments are extremely expensive, draining, and challenging mentally for everyone involved. This year I challenge you to help fight the good fight and help kids who are battling pediatric cancer.
Jadin tore three out of the four ligaments in his knee this past year in his second game of the season. He was devasted due to the expectations he had for the year. Jadin was talking with an opposing coach before one of their games recently and the coach was encouraging Jadin and he had shared that he was battling with stage 4 cancer the past four years and basically defying the odds of survival. He mentioned something to Jadin that he wants to share with all of you, the coach said, “I’m about to go into my 65th round of Chemo, don’t let this injury get you, because I won’t let the chemo get me”.
Jadin’s perspective has shifted immensely. Just when you think your situation is bad, there is always someone else who is going through something worse. Jadin wants us ALL to come together and help coach and so many kids around the world fight against pediatric cancer. Please donate and know that anything helps!
