Last weekend, the 38th annual Shrine Bowl All Star Football game was played at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames and Pella’s Blaine Forsythe was amongst the athletes chosen to participate. Forsythe says the experience was eye opening for him and went way beyond the game of football. The annual Shrine Bowl is one of the top fundraisers for the Shriners Children’s Hospitals which provide care for children at no cost to their families. Forsythe says he was able to meet severalcurrent and former hospital patients and see first hand the difference the Shriners Hospitals are making in these kids lives and says it is truly an experience he will never forget.
