 Starting Up Right Out of College




 

Sunday, June 9, 2019 was a great day for the Destination Athlete HQ Team!  We volunteered with the Special Olympics of NJ and assisted their athletes both on and off the Bocce Court. To be part of such a large, community event for NJ was extremely rewarding!  We gave hugs, hand shakes, and smiles as we assisted athletes and awarded medals, but what we received in turn, will be a footprint in our hearts forever.  We gained new friendships and we are proud to share with you, our hearts and our hands were hard at work!
