    MACE and the Rollin tigers went to Blackburn Middle school with Leadership Jackson to teach the health classes about bullying and leadership on February 14th. We put almost every student in a sports chair so  that they could see how different people can be fun. The Rollin Tigers used 3 players against ten students at one time,so each student in each class could play in a game. Thank you to Leadership Jackson and Blackburn Middle School for having us come out and help with this event!

    MACE was in Biloxi this past weekend helping put on an indoor wheelchair tennis clinic with LIFE, TLC and IDS. It was put on at the Salvation Army KROC community center. It was a great facility and the staff was great! We met a 3 year old little girl that had a great spirit and attitude! She loved using the sponge bob racquet and had a great time!! We thank LIFE for having us come down and putting on a great event!!
