EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Join East Brunswick's Fast Break Buddy Ball Team on Saturday, February 24 at 2:00 at Churchill Junior High School for their 11th Annual Findlay Urban Game Day in a celebration of mentoring, partnership, ability, and some great basketball.
Fast Break Buddy Ball gives our Buddies (players) a chance to enjoy the spotlight and showcase their newly learned skills, and competitive spirit
at our annual “My Buddy-My PAL” game day. The Buddies and their PALs have been practicing every Saturday since
the season started in December. The team has have been working with some of the Buddies since the programs inception nine years ago, but no matter ifa participant is a veteran player or a new player, the Game Day is a culmination of everyone’s hard work and dedication.
This years’ event, which will bethe 11th annual Game Day, will be held on Saturday, February 24th.
Fast Break offers special needs kids and young adults a chance to learn the game of basketball and feel good about themselves. Our Buddies are
challenged with numerous special needs, such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, and other disabilities. Presently, there are over 64 Buddies and also around 90 PALs enrolled in the program.
Our PALs, many of who return year-after-year, help our Buddies learn the game, while monitoring their participation for safety. A PAL means so
much more for our Buddies. They become someone whom a Buddy shares what is going on in their lives, confides in, and becomes a friend.
The day will be filled with music, player introductions, applause, smiles, laughter, basketball, and a feeling of accomplishment.
Whether you are a Buddy or a PAL, a parent or a friend, or just a fan of basketball and good people, Fast Break asks residents to come out and support
this great event. Every child is worth it.
