Camp Huddle's mission is to create a day of sports and play by fostering acceptance and inclusion of all people. Nordonia High School student-athletes helped special needs students take part in a day of fun and games including soccer, football, cheerleading and other athletic events.

Jacqui is from Akron, Ohio and chooses to give back in the community in a pretty awesome way. Jacqui helps out with the Junior League of Akron which helps donate thousands of hours back to the city of Akron and the children within it. Jacqui and this group focuses on two main projects throughout the year, one being the Boys and Girls Clubs of Akron to child childhood wellness, exercise and healthy eating. The other is called Blessings in a Backpack where this organization pays for, packs and serves food to children in an Akron school who cannot eat on the weekends. Thank you so much Jacqui and the Junior League of Akron!
