Darrien Tan - Wellesley High School
Darrien Tan from Wellesley High School
This Spring Darrien Tan and a group of Wellesley sophomores started a special needs soccer program in Wellesley. Wellesley is a very sports oriented town, but there aren't many ways for special needs kids to participate in sports in town. Darrien and his friends started TOPSoccer in Wellesley all on their own. They had many planning meetings, fundraised, recruited volunteers and worked with a number of organizations in town to get the program started. They made a presentation to interested parents- pretty impressive for a bunch of 10th graders! The parents of the special needs kids are thrilled to have this program in Wellesley. The kids have loved it. It's amazing to us that these high school kids put this together for our kids! Teri Adler may be contacting you as well.
