JusticeWorks Lycoming Youth Recognized for Volunteer Efforts Supporting Cancer Survivors
JusticeWorks-Lycoming youth, Julio M. and Gabe M., represented JusticeWorks YouthCare at the 2018 Little League World Series Grand Slam Parade, benefitting the YMCA Program, LIVESTRONG.
The 3-hour parade took place in Williamsport, PA., and honored cancer survivors and their families on their journey to empowerment. During the parade, Julio and Gabe worked tirelessly coordinating with team members and interacting with participants in a supportive manner.
Among their many contributions, Julio and Gabe walked alongside the Barcelona, Spain float for over two miles through heavy traffic, guiding participants to maintain safety. They also assisted with event set-up and passing out candy. Despite its challenges, volunteers and participants commented on how much the boys seemed to enjoy the experience. Both boys exhibited patience, empathy, and team spirit from their accomplishments. They will each earn community service hours for their participation in this inspiring event.
Great work Julio and Gabe, way to knock it out of the park!
