As summer kicks off, a new and improved BlazeBlog begins!
BlazeSports has been growing in Georgia as well as nationally and globally. Our athletes, staff, and volunteers have gained unique experiences. Since summer is a busy time at Blaze with many exciting programs and events, BlazeSports wants to personally show you what is going on in the Blaze family.
The NEW and INSPIRING BlazeBlog will address personal stories, testimonials, pictures, videos, and many other things posted by our constituents and Blaze staff.
BlazeSports will be hosting its annual Summer BlazeCamp in Warm Springs, GA this week. BlazeCamp is a five day and four night camp filled with various adapted sports and recreation, and lots of fun! Campers will get the opportunity to make life long friendships. Most of the Camp Counselors are former campers themselves taking on new leadership roles. The BlazeBlog will feature stories from individual campers and counselors.
BlazeSports International is continuing to empower people with disabilities worldwide through sport. We will be participating in the UN Youth Leadership Camp 2014, hosted by the UN Office on Sport for Development and Peace, on June 8, where our own Felipe Rodrigues will be speaking about our international projects alongside organizations such as Right To Play. He will be raising awareness of all attendees about BlazeSports’ various programs, specifically our Haiti project. The BlazeBlog will feature reflections from our student participants, Maggie and Dimitry, in the leadership camp.
Stay tuned in to read more about events, personal stories, and reflections!
