Boston Community Collaborative Coordinates gets kids on Celtics court again

Boston Community Collaborative again coordinated an amazing on court opportunity for kids this week. 25 lucky kids ranging in age from 8-15 got to stand on court for the “ANTHEM BUDDIES” experience for the second game of the Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizard playoff series.

Some things that these kids got to experience this time: Watching warm ups for a LONG time, right next to the court. Seeing players and refs warming up before the game – some of the kids noticed that many of the refs have quite an involved regimen of warming up and stretching. Some of the kids noticed a physical therapist working on Jay Crowder’s legs for a long time before the game. The game was a phenomenal game – an overtime Celtics win!

BCC is thrilled to be able to facilitate such a cool opportunity for these kids.
BCC was incorporated in 2013 and strives to create community by connecting people and resources.
