The Lightning Award

Addison Kapusiak is the youngest recipient of The Tampa bay lightning community hero award.
The 10-year-old from Valrico has a rare condition called traps disease. She goes Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital every two weeks for infusion treatments, then gets to pick a toy from the hospital’s prize closet.
When she noticed a lack of toys, she created Sending Smiles to raise money and make sure the closet stays full. Well that just got a whole lot easier.  The lightning foundation recently presented addison with a 50 thousand dollar award during a lightning game. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
