(70)

The Sports Museum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational institution housed in the TD Garden that has served Boston and New England for more than 37 years. At The Sports Museum, we celebrate the character of Boston sports -- the unique brand of teamwork, determination, responsibility, courage, fairness, and other qualities of character possessed by our teams and athletes that make Boston "The Great

est Sports City in America." Equally important, we use this distinctly rich heritage to help build character in kids so that they can stand strong in the face of drugs, violence, and other dangers. Our mission is to use sports to teach the values of leadership, respect, and cooperation to our youth. Over 20,000 students will participate this year in our educational programs that we deliver to that end, including Boston vs Bullies, Stand Strong, the Will McDonough Writing Contest and more.

Members of the Veterans Legal Services team were thrilled to attend The Sports Museum's 21st Annual Tradition this past Wednesday, December 7! Thank you to our friends at Highland Street Foundation for inviting us out!

Carr (Boston Celtics), and Mark Recchi (Boston Bruins), as well as the diligent and passionate work of the organizers, presenters, vendors, and sponsors (New Balance) in putting together such a spectacular event and standing up to bullying in schools across Greater Boston.
