The Parker Foundation and Florida Tech men’s basketball have partnered through the organization’s Speak Through Sports program, which gives children “the opportunity to be a part of a team and experience sports or activity that they have interest in.”
Through the ‘Be A Buddy” program, the Panthers have been able to have a positive impact on the growth of these children and their families by helping them build confidence, improve motor skills and create opportunities for social and communication growth.
