GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Update: Due to rain, the Turkey Bowl scheduled for Friday will be postponed until Saturday, November 26.
A Guilford County family is turning their grief into giving this Thanksgiving.
The Robertson family lost their only son Cameron in a tragic accident last year. That Thanksgiving, mom Kia and dad Omar started a foundation in their son's honor.
"Cameron was a brilliant 6-year-old boy who loved playing basketball, baseball, and football. He was starting to make new friends on a new football team," said Cameron's mom, Kia Robertson.
Cameron's parents, Kia and her husband Omar, started a foundation in their son's honor. The foundation is hosting the Second Annual Cameron Sports Academy Turkey Bowl on Saturday, November 26. Roberston said the boys and girls ages 5 to 12 can play flag football and celebrate Cam's life while the Robertsons can continue to heal.
"Every day is a struggle. I wake up, and I'm still in disbelief. No one imagines living without a child," said Robertson. "We are keeping his name alive, giving back to the community, and keeping Cameron included in our day-to-day lives!"
The 2nd Annual Cameron Sports Academy Turkey Bowl flag football game will take place on Saturday, November 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is free, and you can sign up now.
