Jumping to Support Great Athletes: PA3 at the Special Olympics of NJ

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).

PA3 Blazes a Trail

November 12, 2011: While several thousand unhappy Princeton fans watched their football team fall to Yale, a dozen Princeton fans of another sort enjoyed a rewarding day clearing a mile-long trail in the beautiful St. Michael’s Preserve in Hopewell. Volunteers (as shown in the group photo) were, rear row: Paul Nehring ’10, Lauren Senesac GS, Doug Ling ’83, Philo Elmer ’69; front row: Victoria Stabile p11, Cole Schlesinger GS, Arlen Hastings ’80, Jim Robertson ’91 with daughter Kiri, Lydia Zaininger ’83, and Alexandra Ling, Doug’s daughter. Jim Amon, D&R Greenway’s stewardship director, led the way and told us about the ecology of the preserve.
