June 9, 2012: For a third straight year, PA3 sent a group of volunteers to the Special Olympics of New Jersey. Our team had the privilege of assisting with the Long Jump event. We all enjoyed an afternoon of taking meticulous measurements, preparing the athletes for their giant leaps, and enjoying awards ceremonies alongside athletes and coaches. Special thanks to our volunteers Haiyan Bian, Arlen Hastings ’80, Andrew Lieu ’06, Rachael Edelson, Elizabeth Jacobson k10, and Zhijun Wu p09(pictured left to right).
