Sports 4 Kids Day to be held at Saint Francis University
Students in grades pre-k through six are invited to Saint Francis University on Sunday, April 21, for the annual Sports 4 Kids Day. This free event will be held from 12:30 pm- 4 pm at the campus’ Stokes Athletics Center. Each Red Flash athletics team will host a sports station. Participants will enjoy a day of fun-filled physical activity and will learn how sports can positively impact their lives. T-shirts, pizza and prizes will be provided for all participants.
The annual Sports 4 Kids Day is held in memory of Alicia Richardson. Alicia, a member of the Saint Francis women’s volleyball team for three years, was preparing for a promising career as a teacher at the time of her passing in January 2007. Each day she carried a hard-working and positive attitude as she juggled playing volleyball, actively participating in the community and attending education classes. She touched the lives of everyone she met with an amazing ability to make those around her laugh without even the slightest effort.
