This tradition began a few years ago and has grown into one of the most treasured moments of the year. “It builds relationships and a wonderful sense of community,” commented therapist, Bernie Hershey. “The kids really look forward to the game.” Hershey has taken the lead on rallying the players, including Schreiber volunteers to partner with each child and help them participate in the game; it’s played by Challenger rules
