Our family received an invite to come back to the Sneaker Soiree this year.  If you remember, this is the event from last year where Gavin received the Freddie Solomon Moral Courage Award!  This is also the event that put Gavin into "Star Status" with the Tampa Bay Rays, The Florida Gators and a few other amazing teams/people in our area!

This year, we got to go as guests and enjoy all the other sports personaliities making a difference in our community.  Since the Finish Line at the Kids Triathlon was named after Gavin this year, they played a wonderful video highlighting that day!  Gavin got to stand up, take a bow, and turn beat red as everyone gave him a HUGE round of applause!  

Gavin got to meet a lot of sports players and coaches.  His favorite that night was Ben Bishop from the Tampa Bay Lightening.  I think they could have talked all night.  What a class act and such a great mentor for kids!  We also got to spend time with our amazing friends from the Tampa Bay Sports Commission who started this wonderful journey for Gavin!  

This is one event that is truly special and means so much to Gavin.  This event really recognized the true spirit in Gavin and is a platform to help the world see that as well.  Thank You Tampa Bay Sports Commission, the Lamberts are truly grateful!
