Henry the Sports Bug is inspiring. Actually the face behind the bug is where the real inspiration begins.... Melissa Detwiler was a child tennis prodigy. She traveled the country playing tennis for twenty years.

She told me she was on the wrong path... And it was God who redirected her path after a car accident.

She says it's a miracle she wasn't killed.

After that she knew it was time to put her efforts into something positive to help kids.

The idea she had been sitting on for the last eight years was born: Henry the Sports Bug.

She wrote a children's book and created a bug costume. She now goes to schools and children's hospitals, spreading cheer and good news about exercise and literacy.

Her program is amazing. The children laugh and respond to their new friend.
