On August 1st 2012, three friends got together to talk about how they could support the Nahorny’s, whose 4-year-old son, Sammy, had just been diagnosed with cancer. That night “Sammy’s Superheroes” was born. They created t-shirts and asked local Nebraska schools to support Childhood Cancer Awareness Month that September. Players, coaches, students and fans bought and wore Sammy’s Superheroes t-shirts, with all funds to be donated to childhood cancer research. No one could have guessed how much money would be raised or how a community would come together to support a sweet boy and his family. Before they knew it, Sammy’s Superheroes had raised nearly $40,000 for childhood cancer research!
