"I know that without obtaining an education, it will be difficult for our youth to be prepared for and successful in life. I know that I am fortunate to have had the opportunity that I had to complete my education while simultaneously achieving my dream. Now I can make a young person's dreams come true through my Brock's Kids Foundation (501c3) and community work."

The Foundation's primary focus is on kids living in under privileged and distressed areas by helping them in a variety of social and academic areas and also encouraging them to realize their full potential. The weekend of events kicks off on Raheem Brock's birthday -- June 12 and includes a visit to sick children at Shriners Hospital of Philadelphia, a night of comedy featuring two nationally known comedians who are also Temple grads and Philadelphia area natives. There will also be a bowling tournament and closing Gala to round out the weekend festivities. All events are open to the public with a limited number of tickets available.
