Anthony Muñoz camp in Ontario

Not that I've lived here FOREVER, but I have a mental block that prevents me from remembering the new name for Colony Park in Ontario. It is, of course, Anthony Muñoz Park, named for the former USC Trojan and Cincinnati Bengal, and former wearer of the orange and the black at Chaffey High School.

And Muñoz is returning to his old home to host a football camp:

The Anthony Munoz Football campu will be held Aug. 1 - 2 at Chaffey High School in Ontario.
The camp will run from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. on both days and will cost $99 ($6 online and credit card convenience fee not included).
Contact the organization about multiple camp / multiple camper discounts.
Each Camper Receives:
• Camp T-Shirt
• Camp Team Photo
• 8 Hours of Expert Instruction
• Opportunity to Win Contests and Prizes
• A Fun and Educational Experience Guaranteed!

Muñoz himself remains a resident in the Cincinnati area, but remains active in that community via the Anthony Muñoz Foundation.

In 2002, Anthony established the Anthony Muñoz Foundation, a non-profit organization that engages the Tri-State region to impact area youth mentally, physically and spiritually. Since its inception, the foundation has impacted thousands of children and raised more than $5,000,000 for foundation programs and select charities.

Besides devoting a great deal of time and energy to his Foundation, Anthony continues to be involved with several community initiatives. He was the chairman of the Billy Graham Mission in 2002. He has spoken to over 150 High School assemblies discouraging the use of drugs and alcohol. He has Co-chaired twelve Anthony Muñoz Cystic Fibrosis golf tournaments and he has been on the Advisory Board of Citizens for Community Values.

Not only does Anthony strive to impact lives in the Tri-State region but he also spends countless hours reaching out to other communities. He has spoken to Military units all over our country and participated in several Military events. Anthony has assisted in two football camps in Guadalajara, Mexico and has been a translator / medical assistant to Mexico with Christian Hands in Action.
