The 10U and 12U Girls Attanucci teams joined together at the Heitz of Heaven 5K Run/Walk to support the Heitz 61 Memorial Foundation. The Foundation helps "others within the community by promoting higher education and encouraging the physical well-being and teamwork of young people involved in sports." It is the Foundation's "hope to keep Ryan’s spirit alive forever by providing assistance to others that have a desire to be exceptional." 14 girls from the 2 teams, plus 13 of their parents, were in attendance.
In addition, for 10U teammate Maddie McGee's 9th birthday on September 12, she asked family and friends to contribute funds to the Foundation in lieu of gifts for her. She and her family raised $555 to give directly to the Heitz 61 Memorial Foundation. In total the teams donated more than $1,300 to the Foundation to support their community.
Great job, teams!
