On January 9th, 2013, CCChampions founder Sidney Kushner brought 10-yr-old pediatric cancer patient KJ (and his parents) to the Boston Celtics game for the special “Heroes Among Us” award!
KJ is in our signature CHAMPIONS Friendship program, and got to experience his very first Celtics game.
The Heroes Among Us program is one of the premier community outreach programs in professional sports. Established as an initiative of the Boston Celtics in 1997, Heroes Among Us honors individuals who have made an overwhelming impact on the lives of others.
It presented to an individual who, through their unique commitment and humanitarian spirit, have made exceptional and lasting contributions to our community. At each home game, the Celtics and their fans have saluted the exemplary efforts of these citizens during a special in-game presentation on the legendary parquet floor.
