Indian Mills wiffle ball players toss a perfect game to Semper Fido

In early June 2017, over 300 students from all grades of the Shamong School District met on the fields of IMMS for a night of fun. The results were impressive and all due to the efforts of two young ballplayers with a vision and a desire to help others.

On Oct. 10, two Indian Mills Memorial School (IMMS) students presented a check in the amount of $1,901 to support the efforts of Semper Fido of Marlton. The concept, developed by seventh grade students Chase Ruppel and Colton Fejko was to organize a school-wide wiffle ball tournament and use the proceeds to help a local business whose mission is “to unite wounded veterans suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injury with rescued dogs trained as service dogs, to nurture a healing and rejuvenating bond between the two.”

With the support of principal Mr. Tim Carroll the two young men organized the entire program and laid out the fields for all grade levels.
