Our numbers just keep growing! Volunteers served over 100 middle and high school basketball players at our March event. A special thanks to the Davis family for putting together Easter treat bags for the players.
February’s Pass ‘Da R.O.C.K. event saw about 100 middle and high school players. They packed out the lobby for pizza, wings, and prizes. Thanks to this month’s volunteers for making it happen! See you next month on March 26th.
Due to a snow day scheduling conflict, Pass ‘Da R.O.C.K. was held a week earlier this month. We weren’t sure what that would mean for numbers, but the kids spread the word and over 90 came ready to play on Saturday! In addition to basketball, pizza, and wings, 20 kids went home with items from the prize table. We saw many new volunteers this month and hope to see them again at future events! Join us next month on February 27th.
Here’s a look at our 2015 Christmas event! Whether you bought socks, volunteered your time on December 26th, or donated to the organization, THANK YOU for helping to make this event a success.
This past weekend kicked off Eastern Hills Bible Church’s Generositree initiative. We were overwhelmed by people’s response! They knocked our socks off with their generosity! Many committed their time to volunteer, buy socks, or gave monetarily. All of these things will help PDR continue to bless the Syracuse community. If you’d like to support PDR this holiday season, please use the link on our homepage.
Over 50 middle and high school guys came out to Faith Heritage Gymnasium this month to play ball, eat pizza, and win prizes. It’s hard to say which prize was more popular on this chilly November afternoon-sweatshirts or candy. Participants are already talking about December’s event. Rumor is there’s a BIG prize this year. Can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with Pass ‘Da R.O.C.K.! Join us Saturday, December 26th at 1pm for our favorite event of the year.
During June’s monthly event, we had visitors from the Move Along organization. This group focuses on enhancing the abilities of individuals with medically documented limitations through athletics. They provided our players with a unique opportunity to experience what it would be like to play basketball in a wheelchair. We are thankful for the perspective our players gained from this experience.
