Ickey Woods donates $100K to Children’s Hospital in son’s name

Former Cincinnati Bengals player Ickey Woods donated $100,000 to Cincinnati Children’s on behalf of the Jovante Woods Foundation. Woods’ sixteen-year-old son, Jovante, passed away in 2010 from an asthma attack.

“They’re going to put it toward doing research for kids who are around Jovante’s age,” said Woods. “And they’re going to put together a program that helps kids be alert to their own symptoms and help them administer their medicine on their own, when they need it.”
