At Annual Reception, ComeUnity Sports Athletes Reconnect; Hofstra University Volunteer of the Year Awarded
ComeUnity is a competitive training and exercise program for about 100 adults with developmental disabilities – the Starz – who participate in basketball, bocce, bowling, skiing, softball and track and field.
