On Jan. 24 more than 80 current Goizueta MBA students joined forces with Special Olympics of Georgia to create a memorable, fun-filled day for the special-needs children and adults of Marietta. From basketball to field hockey to bowling, the student volunteers kept participants engaged, active, and smiling. “The event was a great success,” says Kaili Delp 15MBA/MPH, vice president of community outreach for the Goizueta Business Association. “Nearly a quarter of full-time MBA students participated, and many of them told me how happy they were to be able to help the Special Olympics athletes and to give back to the Atlanta community.”
Goizueta paired the event with an evening fundraiser for Net Impact, a nonprofit organization for students and professionals interested in using business skills to create positive social and environmental change. The proceeds of the fundraiser went to benefit Camp Twin Lakes, a group of Georgia camps that provide programming for children with disabilities and serious illnesses. — Breckyn Wood
