Local MMA Fighters Are Delivering Toys, Smiles and HOPE to Children with Disabilities
Local Professional fighters have just announced an upcoming event taking place at Broward Children’s Center on Tuesday December 4, 2018 to present gifts and toys to children who live with medical disabilities. In an act of kindness and love, UFC fighter Chas Skelly, along with Charles Medical Group, is rounding up his friends from Hard Knocks 365 to let the kids of Broward Children’s Center know that they are not forgotten. It is the goal of the fighters to bring hope and encouragement to a group of brave children who fight the hardest every day to thrive in spite of the many physical challenges they face.
“The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to give back. I know how hard it must be for these kids during the holiday season and we as a team just want to brighten this Christmas for them by ensuring they all wake up with gifts. The kids at Broward Children’s Center are the real champions. I want them to know that we are in their corner. We have their back” says Skelly.
“When we sit and talk about ways to give back, we always circle back to Broward Children’s Center as we have worked with them in the past and fully support what they do. This year we decided on a toy drive” says staff member of Charles Medical Group. “Chas and I have been friends for a long time and, being the fantastic person he is, he reached out to see how he and the guys can help brighten the holidays for these much deserving children”.
Those interested in helping can drop off new, unwrapped toys to Charles Medical group at 200 Glades Road, Suite 2, Boca Raton, FL 33432 or Hard Knocks 365 at 5300 Powerline Rd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309 by December 4th at noon.
