Students participating in Food Brings Hope’s afterschool programs, KidsZone and TeenZone, were invited to attend the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s softball home game. Over 100 students from Mainland High, Starke and Westside Elementary attended the game and cheered the Eagles to victory over the Bulldogs of Ferris State University.
“I found myself constantly smiling seeing everyone so full of joy while they were here, said ERAU Head Softball Coach, Kelsi Dunne. “It sure made our girls’ day to have such a cheerful group of students at our game. Thank you for allowing us to be such a special part of another Food Brings Hope event.”
Students were invited to participate in activities, hosted by the ERAU sports marketing team, between innings. The children had the opportunity to run the bases, participate in games and even take part in a burrito relay.
“I love sports so I had a blast!” said DeJuan Mitchell, fifth grader at Westside Elementary. Mitchell was one of the lucky game attendees to catch a free ERAU athletics t-shirt that was thrown into the crowd by members of the sports marketing team.
Sodexo campus services provided and helped serve students boxed lunches with the help of FBH volunteers.
