UIW’s Cardinals for Kids (CFK), a student run philanthropy organization sponsored by University Mission and Ministry, hosted its first Dodge for a Cure dodge ball tournament on March 28 in the Richard and Jane Cervera Wellness Center. Proceeds benefited the Children’s Hospital of San Antonio with more than $900 raised. Over 110 players participated including students from St. Mary’s University.
The event included a special presentation to Josh Bratton, a Children’s Miracle Network child. Bratton has been receiving treatment at Children’s Hospital of San Antonio since he was four months old. Holden Labradors, a local breeder, donated a 7-week-old black lab for Bratton who battles spina bifida and requires the use of a wheelchair. The dog will be trained by BarkSA at no cost to Bratton.
