Jr. Crusader Baseball Player Supports Coach

Jr. Crusader Baseball player, Ryan Bindl, had a 5th grade project to research a charity of his choice and present it to his class. The class then voted on the most persuasive presentation and choose a winner to receive the proceeds of a bake sale that they coordinate.

The Jr. Crusaders Baseball team is coached by Tim Hollenback. "Tim is a phenomenal coach, leader, and role model for the boys," said Susan Bindl, Ryan's mother. "He also has FSHD, a form of muscular dystrophy. Ryan chose the FSH Society in effort to support Coach Tim & those who have FSHD."

Ryan researched the charity, interviewed his coach, and prepared his presentation. He was thrilled to have won his class vote! He was super motivated to take it a step further. His parents recorded him giving his presentation and helped him set up a fundraising page on the FSH site. It has since really taken off! He has raised over $4,300 so far!

The website, presentation, and interviews can be found here: teamfshd.fshsociety.org/ryanb

Nice work, Ryan! You are really taking it to the next level by helping those in your community!
