Smiles on the Kids’ Faces

We’ve had some cool experiences to highlight for some of our B+ Heroes.  On Saturday August18th, the DelVal BMW Club held their annual B+ Day at the Track at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, NJ.  The kids – and parents – got to take a lap around the track in a race car and got unlimited practice on the very cool simulator!  I think we’re developing some future racers.  Thank you, Dave Gilbert, and all of the members of the Club.

Also that day, a group of local B+ Heroes were welcomed by Major League Soccer’s Philadelphia Union for the beginning of a really cool Childhood Cancer Awareness Month promotion.  The B+ Heroes got to meet the players, watch a match, and they’ll partner with an artist for very unique creations to be unveiled in mid-September.  More exciting details to come.

Last week, thanks to the NYPD and the University of Delaware Police Department, B+ Hero Danny Feltwell was officially sworn in as a New York City police officer.  As you’ll see in the picture, 9 year old Officer Feltwell has his own shirt, hat, badge, and plaque.  The swearing in was held on a police boat with Lady Liberty in the background.  Included in this nice picture are two key members of Team B+ from our New York City office, Carly Bergstein and Julia Travagline.
