Boston Community Collaborative Gets Kids on Celtics Court

Boston Community Collaborative coordinated another amazing on court opportunity for kids this week. 30 lucky kids ranging in age from 8-15 got to form the “HIGH FIVE TUNNEL” for the first game of the Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizard playoff series. These kids high-fived players returning to the court from their locker rooms after half time.

Several things that these kids got to experience: Seeing the Garden from the perspective of the court, being right next to gigantic Celtics during their warm ups, walking right past the half time flipping dunkers and Lucky, walking right past the court side news anchors, Isaiah Thomas’s tooth loss, and a phenomenal Celtics come back and 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.

BCC offers courses in Drama, Dance, Fitness and Engineering for Kids during the St John School afterschool program, courses in Drama in the North End, and at the Josiah Quincy afterschool program. BCC holds a Movers and Shakers class for babies and toddlers at the West End Community Center.
