Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation Event and Field Day

September 30, 2016

On Monday September 19th, students in our Dallas area just keep livin Foundation programs got to experience a special treat, thanks to our longtime partner, the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation. Teens from Eastern Hills High School in Ft. Worth, L.G. Pinkston High School in Dallas, and Sam Houston High School in Arlington were brought to the Rangers Youth Ballpark for an afternoon of fitness and fun, complete with relay races and hula hoop games. In addition, the kids got to meet just keep livin Foundation Founder Matthew McConaughey and his eight-year-old son Levi. Congregating on the shaded bleachers to beat the 100 degree heat, the kids shared their favorite parts of the just keep livin program, and had a great time getting to ask Matthew questions and asking for his advice on how to follow their dreams. They were even treated to a special surprise experience from recently-retired Rangers great, Prince Fielder! The students enjoyed a dinner of Pollo Tropical before being brought over to Globe Life Park, where they watched the Rangers take on the Anaheim Angels and come away with a 3-2 win. Thanks so much to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation for an amazing continued partnership and for always creating such special opportunities for our students!
