Thousands of kids with life-threatening illnesses hit the court to be a Buckeye for a day
The Ohio State men's basketball team held its annual father-son basketball clinic in partnership with the organization A Kid Again.
Over 1,000 kids with life-threatening illnesses and their fathers got to suit up and take to the hardwood.
Participants said it was an unbelievable experience, a bit of a break from some of their health struggles.
"Life's just unpredictable for all of us, but when you throw in the complications of a medically fragile kid, life can sometimes get the best of you," said Bruce and Toby Holt, participants in the event. "And it's always nice to have an organization like A Kid Again, where you can always see on your calendar there's going to be something for you to do to be a nice little distraction from the everyday routine."
This was the 21st year for the event.
