Dear Editor, 

On behalf of Fast Break Basketball's Buddy Ball division, we would like to thank Dr. Brad Cohen for helping us secure Churchill Jr. HS as our home base. Our Buddy Ball division, which is for children and young adults with special needs, has served our community and surrounding towns, and is getting ready to start our 14th season.

Over the last few years, the program has grown tremendously, where now we have over 75 special needs children and over 110 PALs (Jr. HS & HS kids that work with the players). We outgrew the elementary school we had played in when we were only 50 kids and were in desperate need of a new location. Dr. Cohen visited us during one of our Saturday sessions, and promised to help us find a new venue in order to keep the program vibrant and manageable. He worked with the school board and administration to help us secure a better venue for the kids, parents and all participants.

We can't thank him enough for being true to his word with helping us find a more fitting location, a champion for our special needs program, and a person we can trust and rely upon.
