CP Nassau and the Plainedge Auxiliary would like to congratulate two of our students, Michael Battaglia and Nicolette Lisa, who are members of the TEENS for CP Organization. TEENS for CP is made up of a unique group of young people who work one-on-one with children and adults who are physically challenged. These teens Buddy-Up with our athletes and help them play team sports.
At Buddy Baseball on October 16, 2016, the athlete and the teen worked together during a game pitching, hitting, running the bases and fielding. These teens have shown extraordinary qualities of understanding, patience, and compassion. Teens learn leadership skills and the athletes of our CP Nassau family get to experience a day of fun. In the past, some of these acquaintances have grown into long-term relationships.
Congratulations to Michael and Nicolette for volunteering their time to such a wonderful cause.
