Myron Rolle to Help Foster Kids

April 20th, 2009 by flanews

FSU football star and Rhodes Scholar Myron Rolle will spend part of his summer working with foster kids.

Rolle is partnering with the Department of Children and Families to host a leadership camp for a hundred foster kids. The camp will be held in Starke, Florida and will focus on physical health and leadership. The camp will be named after Rolle and will feature several NFL players. Rolle said the camp will help teach kids to become leaders in their communities.

“These 12, 14-year olds, theyre going to be the ones taking care of us and leading the country in the future and we want to make sure that we provide them with the ample opportunity and the skills to do just that,” said Rolle.

The camp will be held June 15 19th. 50 boys and 50 girls from Florida’s foster care system will receive invitations to the camp.
