2011-2012 Exton Kings Bantam Families
The remarkable families of this team created the Sweet Jane's Wish Foundation as a way to honor their coach Jeb Booge and his wife Jane's loving and optimistic spirit.
In February 2012, Jane was hospitalized with complications from her cancer treatments and the team made a simple gesture of attempting to send her flowers. Jane's gracious response was to "use the money for the boys", thus the name Sweet Jane's Wish.
