West Cobb Extreme 05 Hosts Down Syndrome Awareness Event

On March 21, 2019, West Cobb Extreme ’05 – Taliaferro hosted a fun night for kids with special needs as a part of a community service project. The team’s goal was to celebrate kids with special needs and to help bring awareness to Down Syndrome in our community.

The softball team all wore their crazy socks and handed out Down Syndrome Awareness bracelets and stickers, as March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day. The kids in attendance were invited to play ball on the field with the Extreme team. Extreme players assisted the kids with hitting the ball and running the bases. Before and after the game, the kids also enjoyed playing in a jump house and dancing to music!

The team took donations throughout the evening to raise money for Down Syndrome Awareness. A total of $731 was raised and will be issued to Down Syndrome Association of Atlanta and Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network of Atlanta. A good time was had by all!
