Major Rich Ward was an all-conference, shut down cornerback at the University of Tennessee—Chattanooga, a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and a highly decorated member of the United States Army with multiple deployments that placed him in harm’s way. But much more than that, Rich was a man of faith, family and friends. Rich died unexpectedly last year from a stroke. He left behind his college sweetheart and wife, Vanessa, and their three children; English, Ellen and Garrett.
Rich served and supported others throughout his life and one of the organizations that was very special to him was Boysville—A Texas Home for Boys and Girls. All donations from this event will be used to support Boysville.
Boysville has been a pillar of the San Antonio community since its founding in 1943. Through our four core programs, we provide transformative, comprehensive care for boys and girls, newborn to 23 years old, who have experienced abuse, neglect, and family crisis. Our nationally accredited programs care for over 300 children each year. With over 5,800 confirmed cases of child abuse in Bexar County, and children in care outnumbering available foster homes 40:1, Boysville fills a gap in the community for quality care that enables children in need to build strong futures and become responsible adults.
