Day at the Ballpark with Breakthrough Schools & Cleveland Indians

September 6, 2019

THANK YOU, to our sponsors and mentors for making a Day at the Ballpark with Breakthrough Schools students a real home run!

Middle school students representing four Breakthrough School campuses were paired up with over 40 business mentors for a day of fun and learning at the September 5th Cleveland Indians game. Before the game students and mentors enjoyed a lunch buffet at the Terrace Club overlooking the field. The first pitch was thrown out by student, Keziah Dorroh, with mentor, Linda Olejko of Glenmede. The students cheered on the Indians in section 172, members of our group held the finish line for the Hot Dog Derby race!
