Info: During WolvesCare month, the FastBreak Foundation turns its attention to some of the Wolves’ smallest fans, but those with the biggest hearts: children suffering from serious illnesses. The WolvesCare initiative works to make a difference in these courageous children’s lives through special events in the community and unique experiences at each Wolves home game in January.

The children participating in the event are from HopeKids, a nonprofit organization that works to restore hope and transform the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
