An Upper Arlington sixth-grader will host a local dodgeball tournament this weekend to raise money to help link troubled men to resources for rebuilding their lives.
Max Gillum, a sixth-grader at Hastings Middle School, steadfastly believes the struggles that arise in people’s lives — whether through circumstance or faulty decisions — deserve at least an opportunity for redemption.
That is why, inspired by a community service learning program called See Kids Dream, he organized a local dodgeball tournament last year that recruited Upper Arlington elementary school and middle school students to battle it out and raise money to benefit Faith Mission, a 24-hour emergency shelter with two Columbus locations that serves up to 199 men and 38 women in need.
