Hooping It Up

Special needs students at Bishop Ryan took to the floor to the cheers of their fellow students at the Hooping It Up event Friday. The object: sink as many baskets in a minute as you can. The goal: raise awareness and funds for the Best Buddies program, which pairs these students with a ‘buddy’. The result: a fun time, helping students realize their full potential. Here’s a look at a few of the participants. -Barry Gray
