"I always enjoy coming back to Peoria. This is a connection that I will always have. I keep in touch with a lot of the community, so it feels like home. These people have done so much for me, so coming into town to help with a charity event or run a basketball camp is the least I can do. The work I do with the OSF Children's Hospital is something that I love. It touches me in a way that always makes me want to do more."

Hersey Hawkins, Bradley University and NBA basketball star.
