WACO, Texas (KCEN) -- The Dallas Cowboys stopped by Baylor University in Waco, Texas Tuesday and invited boys and girls from West to a free football and cheer camp.
Team players and cheerleaders hoped the event would help kids impacted by April's explosion at a fertilizer plant get their mind off the devastation.
"They keep doing this here to get their mind off of it. Shoot! It's perfect! It's very very good for them," said West resident Thomas Wolf.
Wolf says explaining to his kids what happened to their hometown is hard for the parents of West.
So when he sees his daughter practicing a routine next to the famous Cowboy Cheerleaders, he feels nothing but gratitude.
"There is no better happiness than to see when your kids are happy," said West resident Bobby Teat.
Baylor alumni and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams did drills right next to the ones who look up to him.
He says even if he wasn't a Cowboy he would still do whatever he could to help out.
"I'm going to do my best to do anything i can to help out," Williams said.
Getting their mind of a tragic memory, to make ones that last a lifetime.
