Way to go 07 Explosion! The 07 Explosion 2016 community service project was to learn about Down Syndrome, participate in the Buddy Walk and support Harpers Heroes and the Down Syndrome Awareness Group of East Tennessee. A Buddy Walk representative and mother of a child with Down Syndrome came to a league game and with the 07 players. She taught them what Down Syndrome is and how the Buddy Walk helps families who have children with Down Syndrome. The team participated in the Buddy Walk on October 23 and walked with Harper’s Heroes and made a team donation to the cause. It was a great afternoon in Knoxville, our players learned a lot, and Harper is an awesome kid! Outstanding job 07 Explosion, we are sooo proud of you guys!
