The Jerusalem Friendship Circle and ADI Jerusalem take to the field to play ball!

The Jerusalem Friendship Circle once again invited ADI Jerusalem residents to participate in the organization’s annual baseball game.

The Friendship Circle, an organization which exists to bring happiness and companionship to children and young adults with special needs by celebrating their individuality as well as bringing energy, support and peace of mind to their families, went all out to make sure that ADI residents could participate, treating them in every way as guests of honor.

Baseball stars from Israel and abroad participated in the game, as well as special guest, Israeli sports champion Yarden Gerbi, 2016 Summer Olympics bronze medalist.

ADI participants, joined in the game by other children with various disabilities, enjoyed the exciting and unique game, especially favoring running around the open field. The encouragement, cheers and signs flashing in the crowd imparted a wonderful feeling to all present.

Residents and students are already waiting for next year’s game.
