Organization brings sports to special needs children

By Delivrine Registre - bio | email

Tifton, GA (WALB) - The Tift County Navigators group is trying to start a Buddy Ball League. It would allow special needs children to play softball with the help of a buddy.

They're now asking children and volunteers to sign up. They also want businesses to donate equipment and T-shirts.

"I have two children that have special needs, and I want to get them more involved," said Jessica Hall of Tift Navigators. "I want them to be around other children. I want them to see that are completely different, but they all have the same interest. They all want to be empowered. We all want to go forward."

If you want to volunteer as a buddy or donate resources, call Jessica Hall at 229-386-2797. She hopes the children will be able to play in their first softball game by the fall.
