Talk about a special game.
A non-profit in Fort Myers called “Game Day Bunch” is bringing people with disabilities from across Southwest Florida to professional MLB baseball games. The organization hopes to bring a day full of excitement and joy. Members of the bunch can socialize, meet new people , and learn from each other.
My experience with the “Game Day Bunch” was unforgettable.
When I first arrived to the Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers, I met founder, Catherine McKinzie. Here, she greeted me and gave me a rundown of the events for the day. There were meet and greets, free hot dogs, drinks, and a section where members sat together.
After my interview with Catherine, I decided to put the camera down, and immerse myself with the group. I sat next to a group from Fort Myers High School who were among some of the coolest kids I’ve talked to.
Non-profits like Game Day Bunch deserve the support, recognition and attention from our community. Next time you’re at the ball park, keep an eye out for the Game Day Bunch!
