This past summer, the Big HITS Foundation celebrated its 12th Annual Ernie Sims Charity Weekend on July 12-13, 2019. The weekend featured a Charity Youth Football and Cheer Camp and a Track and Field Invitation. The Youth Football and Cheer provided opportunities to over 300 youth with former NFL players, current and former FSU Football players, Heisman Trophy Winner Charlie Ward and Godby football coaches and players as coaches/instructors.
The Ernie Sims Charity Weekend was created 12 years ago to impact youth through sports, fitness and mentoring and to honor Tallahassee student-athletes for their community involvement, and award them with scholarships to further their education. This year, the top three (3) senior student-athletes in Leon County received the Big HITS Foundation Scholarship and acknowledgment at our Community Champions Gala.
