Maccabi Hunter Haifa players John DiBartolomeo and Gilad Karni participated for the second year in a row, in an event in honor of Variety Israel’s children at Yitzhak Rabin School at Nesher.
The visit was as part of the team’s community activity and in cooperation with Variety Israel. The event was held in-front of 500 kids from the school at their local basketball court.
This is the fifth year the School is holding this event as a donation day for the Variety Kids. All the school’s students bought the Heart of Gold pin and learned about “accepting the other” subject, through the exposure to kids with special needs. To cap the week of learning and understanding Variety Kids’, Maccabi Hunter Haifa players were invited to participate.
All of the students and some of the parents enjoyed the sports event. In the first part, the young kids played in different skills stations, with the players and right after played a few short and funny games with the players and parents.
“There is no doubt that the visit of the players to the school, helped to make the feeling of giving back stronger, to both children and parents, to the Variety organization and of course it’s a great experience for everybody,” Uki Lev, Varity Israel’s North Manager said.
