PMG of Winston-Salem's TC Deluca Gives Back

TC Deluca, a Senior Clinical Research Coordinator in Winston-Salem, used her community service day this year volunteering with the Challenger Division of Little League.  Here is TC's story of service.....

"I used my service day to go to Williamsport, PA with my husband to volunteer at the Challenger Division Championship Game in August.  The Challenger Division of Little League is designed to offer the opportunity to play Little League baseball to players who are physically and mentally disabled.  My husband and I run the Challenger Division League at SW Forsyth Little League in Clemmons, NC and have done so for the last 5 years.  We have approximately 50 kids who come to play ball ever Saturday during the Spring Season.  Our kids range in age from 3-22 and represent a variety of special needs including Autism, Down's Syndrome, and Cerebral Palsy.  We have quite a few players who are confined to wheelchairs so must use a walker to get around the bases.  The reason we went to Williamsport this year is that our team has been invited to play in the Little League World Series in Williamsport in 2012!"

Great work TC!!!  Learn more about the Challenger Division of Little League here.

  1. Way to go TC & Chuck Deluca for giving so much of yourselves to this worthy cause! I recommend watching these games. The kids are so happy! Makes you think to never complain about your own problems!
