On Saturday, September 14, the Varsity and Junior Varsity Volleyball teams traveled to Eisenhower Park to participate in Nassau County’s League of Yes baseball game.
As per Kellenberg Memorial’s mission, rooted in Christ’s love for all of humanity, athletic teams are encouraged to engage in a Service Over Self project each season. This year, the volleyball program was invited to assist in the League of Yes, which is an organization dedicated to children and adults with special needs. The League of Yes orchestrates baseball games where home runs are abundant and smiles abound.
Matched up with buddies, the volleyball program assisted with League of Yes participants with hitting and running the bases as well as with games like Ring Around the Rosie and Hot Potato.
The day was filled with joy, and as a program, the volleyball players left with gratitude in their hearts for having been given the gift of being in the presence of these amazing children and parents. The teams felt humbled and honored to have spent a day with people who have much to teach the world about perfect love and diversity.
Hopefully, this is the beginning of a long relationship with such an extraordinary organization!
