Yankees Hope Week Day 1: “Muddy Puddles Project”

New York Yankees

Earlier today, HOPE Week 2018 kicked off with Manager Aaron Boone, Brett Gardner, Sonny Gray, Didi Gregorius, bench coach Josh Bard, NYCFC Goalkeeper Brad Stuver and the founders of the Muddy Puddles Project, Cindy and Louis Campbell, surprising families that have been affected by pediatric cancer at Mohawk Day Camp. The group participated in a “Mess Fest” that included playing in mud and foam pits, “pie-face” and water fights. 

Founded by Cindy and Louis Campbell in memory of their son, Ty Louis, the Muddy Puddles Project is a celebration of children and childhood. Ty dreamed of jumping in muddy puddles once his cancer was cured but passed away just days after his fifth birthday. The project embodies the act of kids being kids in honor of those who can’t while raising much needed funds for pediatric cancer.
