Vols to show support for sick children during South Carolina game
If you see any of Tennessee’s football players wearing beads on Saturday against South Carolina, don’t think of it as a fashion statement. It’s actually for a great cause.
Several Tennessee players sent beads and a note to patients in East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. The Vols will wear matching beads when Tennessee hosts South Carolina on Saturday. Tennessee teamed with Beads of Courage, which is a charity that supports children and teens coping with serious illness.
