This Saturday, June 11, 2011 is the Annual University of Michigan’s Womans Football camp.
This will be the second time I have played, attended it. The first time was in Summer of 2004 and I broke my pinkey finger catching a pass with Lloyd Carr looking on.
I was playing Wide Receiver in the afternoon scrimmage and and I was not suppose to be thrown a pass. It was a running play but the running back got tackled, the QB looked up and saw me open so through me the ball and I caught it. (breaking my finger)
I walked up to my Coach, who at the time was Braylon Edwards, and said, “I think I broke my finger.”
“Nah,” said Braylon, “Good catch, get back in there.”
But, I walked off the field with my finger hanging and went into the locker room, where Paul Schmidt, Athletic Trainer for the Wolverines said, “Missy, get out to Saline Hospital and get an x-ray right away.” (Paul is from Saline and knew me from there.) So I did…3 days later I had surgery and wore a halo cast for 3 months.
Now I am playing again!!
But, this time we signed Medical Release Forms. Wonder why?
My husband played QB in high school, and the Marines (anyone remember when the Marines had a team?) and all my 3 sons played in high school. NOT ONE of them ever had a serious injury, but mom goes out one day and OUCH!
Now even though we will have a lot of fun at the Womans U of M Football Camp, it does serve a higher purpse and that is to raise funds for the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center. Since its creation in 1999, the program has helped more than 15,000 cancer patients and their families.
I never have begged asked for support on my Ann Arbor Real Estate Blog, but TODAY I am.
Can you help us raise money for this worthy event by donating to The Missy Caulk TEAM‘s efforts for U of M Comprehensive Cancer Center?
Christa and I are excited to be helping them out and you know after reading my story about my broken finger I would not be doing this again, if not for a worthy cause.
…if eveyone could give $5.00 to $10.00, $50.00 or $100.00 we would be so very grateful.
DONATE HERE Thank you!!
