The work, sacrifice, and selflessness of Rico Cabrera, Jr. as part of the Rico's Get Better Foundation cannot be entirely conveyed, summarized, or fully appreciated by words alone. However, his work within his foundation certainly rings true the famous words of Woodrow Wilson who said "there is no higher religion than human service...to work for the common good is the greatest creed." Young men and women are given an opportunity to broaden their minds and experience the world in a way that transcends just basketball. As exciting and invigorating as basketball is as a sport, Rico helps young people realize that it is, more importantly, a metaphor that teaches invaluable life lessons as they mature, become more educated, and learn more about the world we live in . These lessons are priceless and, at minimum, future generations can then embrace the "greatest creed" that Wilson alludes to.
