At the April 12 Long Beach Board of Education meeting, the board recognized the students and volunteers of this year’s Challenger Basketball team. Awards of participation were presented to the 13 members of the team and recognition was given to the six high school helpers and 21 staff members who volunteered their time to make this season fun and enjoyable.
The Challenger League provides children with developmental and physical disabilities the opportunity to participate in athletic and social events, and develop lasting relationships among their peers, coaches, and parents. It creates an environment of inclusion for all members of the community and their families.
The Long Beach Board of Education is very proud of all the student participants as well as everyone responsible for the success of the Challenger Basketball program.
