Kickball For Heartwalk Foundation

M.A.P.S hosted their one-day kickball tournament on Saturday, September 27th.  This year's event was co-sponsored by Lambda Theta Phi.  The competitors were fellow clubs from Barry University campus (Lambda Theta Phi, Tri-Beta Honor Society, Chemistry Club & Pre-Dental Club).  

The objective of the event was to generate funds to donate to the Miami-Dade Heart Walk Association! Due to the generosity of this year's participants, we raised $110.  The members of M.A.P.S would like to express heartfelt gratitude to everyone who played a role in the event’s success.  Thank you all for donating your time and money in helping to save someone’s life! You ROCK!!!
