The event was held at Pampa High School in Pampa, Texas.

Volunteers, including members of the high school’s football team helped by pushing wheelchairs and helping players learn how to run plays and interact with each other.

Epic team members Erin Keller, therapy director, and Sheryl Garth, certified occupational therapy assistant, enjoyed handing out snacks and refreshments to players throughout the game.

Four Epic Amarillo patients were among the group of players.

“It was so fun to watch the kids having a blast,” said Erin. “And it was amazing to see the smiles and joy on the kids’ faces as they heard the cheers from everyone in the crowd.”

Touchdown, Amarillo!
