Country music icon Garth Brooks visited the Pro Football Hall of Fame campus on Saturday. The music legend’s appearance was part of a camp run by The Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation in cooperation with ProCamps Sports. Also joining the nearly 100 local kids on hand for the camp was Gold Jacket Anthony Muñoz.
“It’s all about the kids,” Brooks shared as he watched the camp. “Of all the things I’ve got to do … this is the most important thing I’ve ever been able to be a part of.”
The Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation and ProCamps have teamed together for the past decade to make a difference in the lives of children across the country. The Teammates for Kids Foundation provides scholarships for underprivileged children allowing them to attend ProCamps Sports Camps, hosted by some of the biggest names in sports. Muñoz, from the Hall of Fame’s Class of 1998, shared the many lessons learned from the Game and life that shape one’s character.
A “Teammates ProCamp” is held in each stop of Brooks’ “World Tour.” Camps are free to the participants from the organizations selected to attend. Today’s kids were invited from the Canton United Way, Canton City Schools and the Boys & Girls Club of Massillon, Canton and Akron. Brooks performed two shows in Cleveland on Friday night and will return to Quicken Loans Arena for two more shows tonight.
“The Hall is deeply grateful for the generosity of Garth and Anthony today. They are special men with BIG hearts who use their fame to make a difference in the lives of kids so that they can all lead a Hall of Fame life,” Hall of Fame President David Baker stated.
“Teammates ProCamp” took place on the Hall’s 70-yard FieldTurf field located on the center of the Hall’s campus. The Hall of Fame’s Youth & Education department staff and museum volunteers helped out with the camp that included a tour of the museum following the on-field activities.
