Each year, students in pre-k through grade six from the surrounding area are invited to Saint Francis for this FREE sports event with members of Red Flash athletics teams. All teams host their own sports stations and instruct their young guests; students participate in each of the stations. The goal is for students to enjoy a day of fun-filled physical activity and learn about the valuable lessons that sports can provide to them throughout their lives. The end of the day includes t-shirts, pizza, and prizes for all participants.

The annual Sports 4 Kids Day is held in memory of Alicia Richardson. Alicia, a member of the Saint Francis women’s volleyball team for three years, was beginning a promising career as a teacher at the time of her passing in January 2007. Each day she carried a hard-working and positive attitude as she juggled playing volleyball, actively participating in the community, and attending education classes. She touched the lives of everyone she met with an amazing ability to make those around her laugh without even the slightest effort.

Saint Francis University aims to be as accessible as possible. Please contact our Accessibility Services Coordinator, April Fry, with specific inquiries at 814-472-3176 or complete our online request form at http://francis.edu/accessibility-accommodation-request/.
