To say the least, Joe Mixon’s 2019 season has been a disappointment. But struggles on the field have not changed who Mixon has been off of the field since being drafted by the Bengals.
This week, in partnership with Strikes For Kids, Mixon hosted 20 kids from the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati for an afternoon of bowling at the Main Event complex in West Chester, Ohio.
The 20 children, who were rewarded for their athletic and academic achievements, received bowling, unlimited card games, pizza, soft drinks and brand new bikes provided by premier sponsor Cummings and presented to them by Mixon.

Mixon is no stranger to working with kids. He has his own football camp he hosts every summer in Cincinnati, as well as one in his hometown of Oakley, California.
Strikes For Kids will be hosting another Strikes For Kids Cincy event in the spring with Tyler Boyd that will provide 250 backpacks to the children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati.
Even in a winless season, the Bengals’ young stars are still doing their part in the community.
