Starlight Children’s Foundation teams up with Athletes for Hope to deliver 100,000 Starlight Gowns to hospitals across the US. Created with children in mind, Starlight Gowns bring smiles to hospitalized children by transforming drab, uncomfortable and embarrassing hospital garments into fun, comfy and colorful gowns that help sick kids feel like superstars. More than 60 athletes have signed on to help Starlight donate Starlight Gowns to children in hospitals from coast to coast. Athletes include Carl Edwards, Jr. of the Chicago Cubs, Vince Biegel of the Green Bay Packers, newest New York Jet Demario Davis, Steven Wright of the Boston Red Sox, racing phenom Rob Megennis and current Portland Thorns and US Women’s National Soccer team defender Meghan Klingenberg, among others. Athletes for Hope, a nonprofit organization created by Andre Agassi, Muhammad Ali, Mia Hamm, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Jeff Gordon and Alonzo Mourning among others, to bring athletes together to educate, inspire and empower them to make a difference in the world.
