Swoop's Stoop is an initiative that was created by former Miami goaltender Cody Reichard ('12) beginning in the 2010-11 Miami University hockey season as an effort to help sick children in Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The program started out small by recognizing a few children at Miami Hockey games and has now grown into a funded program providing many more opportunities to these same children in Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The goal of the program is to provide an experience to ill kids that they wouldn't normally receive because most of their time is spent at the hospital. Miami University's hockey team provides this experience by hosting different groups of children one time every home series played in Oxford and with current varsity Miami student-athletes, including the hockey team, making trips to visit and interact with the children at Cincinnati Children's hospital. The program is sponsored by both Step Resources and Miami's Red & White Club.Mission:
-Providing life enrichment experiences to children facing life-changing illnesses
Long Term Goals:
-Expand the program to involve the entire Miami Athletic department and its teams
-Create a fund to benefit those families struggling with the financial costs of their children's treatment
