Brad Jamison’s 30 Days of Service

  1. Updates

It's a lot of work to play all day, and Brad Jamison, former VP of Corporate Initiatives at Disney/ABC Television Group, learned that first hand. On day 25 of his 30 Days of Service, he volunteered with Playworks at Bennett-Kew Elementary. Playing 4-Square for the first time ever, assisting Coach Green with class game times and the after-school program left him "absolutely exhausted." It also left him full of faith in our future, because he got to see first hand how play can make a difference.

Check out his blog to see what his day consisted of at Bennett-Kew Elementary.
