Matt brought the idea with him to Kohl’s Professional Camps, the premier training program for football kickers, punters and long-snappers. The synergy was instant and with the support of Jamie Kohl, Kohl’s Kicking Camps founder and camp director, the Kick-It Champion program was born.

Rebecca Byrom (aka Grandma Bee) wanted to support f her grandson Alex, <link to webpage> who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2016. Since Alex faced his scary situation so bravely, she wanted to do something that scared her: skydiving! Despite being over 70 years old, both she and her husband Tom leapt from a plane in San Diego last July. With over $28,000 raised, facing her fears certainly paid off for Grandma Bee as she made a huge impact for kids with cancer. Watch the video of the sky dive below.
