Mr. Rizzo Lets Help Kids Be Kids - Give Us A Moonshot

Hopecam’s Champion Matteo met with Chicago Cubs baseball player Anthony Rizzo On July 19th. Anthony was 18 and just drafted and he was diagnosed with cancer. Now he's a 3 time All Star and Superhero and knows personally what kids go through fighting cancer. Matteo gave Mr. Rizzo a hand written letter that asked him for a “moonshot” for kids with cancer and not only did Anthony give him one but he got a Grand Slam! Watch the Chicago’s WGN9 Video of Matteo and Anthony Rizzo.

AWS DeepLens Health Challenge

Hopecam's founder, Len Forkas, talks about how you can use AWS DeepLens to boost mental or physical health and support children overcome challenges with cancer.

What is the AWS DeepLens Health Challenge?

*For the Health Challenge, you can use your DeepLens to develop a project about boosting your mental or physical health. Think of something in your life you want to improve, and figure out how DeepLens and AI might help get you there. We’re hoping to see projects that range from helping patients with chronic diseases through to yoga pose recognitions and exercise counting.

Giving back
For each project that meets the AWS DeepLens Health Challenge entry criteria, AWS will give you $50 in AWS credits, and Hopecam will receive $249 from AWS!
