Philadelphia, PA - June 5th, 2023 - On Thursday, June 22, 2023, Rhys and Jayme Hoskins will host the 2nd annual “Go Yard with Rhys Hoskins” to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). Xfinity is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor.  This year’s event will take place at Yards Brewery in Philadelphia from 7PM - 10PM.  You can register or donate here. Registration fees for this event accelerate research, advance care, and empower MDA families in our community living with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases.

“We are so grateful for the opportunity to host Go Yard again this year. Last year, we were blown away by the support of the Philadelphia community, the Phillies organization and all of those that made our first annual event so special. This year is even more exciting to have Xfinity as our event’s Presenting Sponsor! Jayme and I are looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and welcoming those who did not have the chance to get involved last year!” said Rhys Hoskins, Philadelphia Phillies First Baseman.

“Rhys and Jayme have made an incredible difference for people living with muscular dystrophy, ALS, and related neuromuscular diseases in the Delaware Valley; first as MDA Summer Camp counselors in high school, and for the past six years as local ambassadors for the organization. This event will be no exception.” said Amanda Sweet, Account Director of the Muscular Dystrophy Association. “The Hoskins’ support has not only raised valuable funds but raised awareness and hope for local families living with muscle disease.” 

Funds raised at Xfinity Presents Go Yard with Rhys Hoskins also support educational programs, the MDA Resource Center, multidisciplinary medical teams at the MDA Care Center at Nemours Children’s Hospital in Wilmington, DE as well as the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (ALS), Temple University Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.  Contributions send kids and young adults to a transformative experience at MDA Summer Camp in Worcester, PA (and nationwide) - all at no cost to families.
