The Caring, the Giving Live on

Ricky King Fund was established by local radio talk-show host extraordinaire Rich King. It is a memorial to his late little boy, whose death led to fundraising for medical research and direct help to families of sick kids. Now, four years after Rich King’s death, it is comforting to see the Ricky King Fund adhering to its fundamental legacy. This newspaper’s Monday “Our World” feature told of Uriel Jacob of Naples, born with physical challenges that keep him from walking, at least so far. The Ricky King Fund to the rescue, working with others to help with a special van so Uriel, 6, can start school. Rich King would have been proud. His spirit is well served.
