“Because as a volunteer you get far more out of it than you come close to giving.  The athletes have so much to offer and so much to teach, Lessons in teamwork, encouragement, positive attitude, perseverance only to name a few.  They change me for the better far more than I could ever hope to change them.”
                  -Mary Buscher, Sammons Financial Group
