FORT WAYNE, IN. (WANE) – Ron Howard may have won a D-League Championship and a league MVP in April – but his June is even busier. Rather than worrying about the playoffs – Howard spends his days on the playground.
The Mad Ants star and his wife Reesha are in their third year of running the Game Day Sports Camp – a day camp for kids held at Concordia Theological Seminary each summer. The Howard’s say the camp has grown each year, with campers given the option of two, four and six week options. For Ron – it’s a microcosm of what his life has been since arriving in Fort Wayne nearly a decade ago.
Howard has been with the Mad Ants from the very beginning and has settled down in Fort Wayne as a result.
“Fort Wayne accepted us,” Howard says. “When we came here, you know, we were just barely here and the city accepted us. It’s our duty to be here, to give back.”
Howard’s camp is doing just that. Reesha Howard says year one of the camp began with nearly 50 kids and the numbers just continue to grow. With the family settled in town for the long haul, the camp will likely continue to grow in the years to come.
