Located between Charleston and Columbia, SC is the city of Bamberg. Even though the population of this small town is less than 4,000 people, there are big things happening there this summer! The Cornerstone team is a proud supporter of the Ricky Sapp Foundation, a group working to bring support to the youths of this community, through various outreach programs, specifically a football and cheerleading camp that the foundation will host for the town this July 11th.
Former NFL player Ricky Sapp is from Bamberg, and explains why this cause means so much to him. “Bamberg is my hometown,” he relates. “This is where I’m from and I always knew that I needed to come back to my hometown and do something for the kids. For me, that is what it’s all about- going home and doing something very special for the kids of my community.”
July 11, 2020 is the big day when the foundation will present the “Dream Big, Live Big Football and Cheerleading camp” followed by a kickball game and then a big cookout for the community!
The camp will begin at 9 am at the Ness Sports Complex. 133 Ness Drive, Bamberg, SC 29003. The lunch and kickball game will begin around noon. Camp participants are asked to arrive by 8:30 am. The camps are being taught by Former NFL football players and an NFL All-Star Cheerleader.
The best part? Everything is free! Including the food provided for the kids participating in the camp, and the community cookout that will follow.
Awards will be given to the kids, as well as a T-shirt, wristband, and bookbag for each participant.

The Ricky Sapp Foundation was formed by NFL Veteran Linebacker Ricky Sapp. Ricky encourages youth to make positive changes within themselves, their schools and communities. A single action can make a difference in the community; collective action can greatly impact the world. Ricky Sapp is driven by a single goal: to do his part in making the world a better place for all, one child at a time.
Encouraging kids to Dream Big Live Big is his passion while also modeling to adults that they have to step up and play a vital role in these coming generations. The Ricky Sapp Foundation was founded to aid kids in becoming their very best and to educate adults that their actions do matter. The Ricky Sapp Foundation has provided hundreds of kids with support such as backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, new shoes and more.
