NBC Sports Philadelphia Shining Star Award Opportunity

Have you been impacted by the March of Dimes mission?

If your child was born premature or had a birth defect you have lived the mission. The March of Dimes mission is to prevent birth defects, infant mortality and premature birth.

Would you be interested in having your child considered for the Comcast SportsNet Shining Star award?

The event will be held in January of 2019 to support the mission of the March of Dimes. We honor children that have been impacted by premature birth and/or birth defects. The child is paired with an athlete from the Philadelphia Flyers to spend time together. We interview the family to allow them to tell the story of their child and we film the interaction with the player. The filming is edited to create a 4 to 5 minute vignette which is shown at the event to introduce the child and player.

Would you like your child considered? Please contact Robert Smoose at for further information.
