Rams Supporting Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU

Rams Supporting Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU

A month ago, we posted a story on Juvonte Reddic, Briante Weber, Treveon Graham, Melvin Johnson, and Jairus Lyles, who paid a visit to Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU to spend some time with patients. Today, Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU released a heartwarming “lip dub” video to Katy Petty’s “Roar”, featuring appearances by the Rams starting at the :45 mark, and carrying on throughout the video.

weberCHoR is asking you to use the hashtag #spreadcheer and donate to support children in the hospital. Disclaimer: as a CHoR full-time employee, I fully endorse this campaign! Full details of the campaign are below:

Between game winning plays and team huddles, the Rams are finding time to get in the holiday spirit by helping Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU (CHoR) #SpreadCheer. As part of their 12 Days of Holiday Cheer, CHoR is challenging the Richmond community to spread cheer and help their cheer-o-meter reach 1,200 acts of cheer by December 31, 2013. You can join the Rams and help #SpreadCheer by:

  • Visiting CHoR on Facebook and posting your six-word plan to #SpreadCheer this holiday
  • Texting HEALTH to 50555 to donate $10 to support children in the hospital

VCU Men’s Basketball players have already joined the #SpreadCheer movement by sharing their six-word messages of cheer. Juvonte Reddic, #15, spreads cheer during the holidays by, “Inspiring others to serve their community.” And nothing says inspiration like leading by reddicexample; Reddic volunteers his time to visit some of his biggest fans at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. Briante Weber, #2, spreads cheer during the holidays by, “Giving Back to the Richmond Community.” How do you plan to #SpreadCheer this holiday?

Players will also star in CHoR’s #SpreadCheer music video set to debut on December 13, 2013. Visit CHoR’s Facebook page for updates and to view the 12 day countdown to the surprise music video reveal! Let’s join the Rams and #SpreadCheer to make the 2013 holiday season memorable for children in the hospital!
