Child life specialist Tori Hoffman stated, "Erin is still carrying around her championship belt and is all smiles when she talks about her experience with the WWE athletes.

Spring Prom is a rite of passage for teens all over the world and our patients at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta were treated to the night of their lives in our Child Life Zone! The theme was Finding Neverland and as usual, every nook and cranny of our Zone was covered in some kind of beautiful decoration - we had a London scene, a pirate ship, the dance floor was a fairy forest, a mermaid lagoon and so much more! One teen patient said "I didn't recognize The Zone - it was so beautiful - just like a miracle!" One patient walked in to prom for the very first time on her new prosthetic legs - she was so proud! She was even more excited when she met other kids who also had prosthetic limbs and she may even join them at camp this summer! Our prom is made possible by so many wonderful volunteers that donate their time, their services and their expertise! Carrey and Cindy are our two 'prom queens' that spend many hours and days planning and decorating. We spend 1 full day transforming The Zone before we welcome in the kids. Everything about the evening is perfect and most kids leave with new friends and lots of new contacts in their phones! They all want to know if they can come back next year! We can't wait!

Garth Brooks is briefly returning to the diamond to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of Teammates. The Pirates are the fourth team to sign Garth to a spring training contract. Previously he has taken the field with the San Diego Padres (1999), New York Mets (2000) and the Kansas City Royals (2004). Brooks is a life-long Pirates fan, "Pittsburgh was my thing, I don't know why ... Just loved them form the beginning, and probably because of Roberto. And from there, Pittsburgh's the only city with all black and gold everything." Garth went on to tell the story of his childhood pledge to Roberto Clemente in 1972. The day after the Pirates legend died on New Year's Eve in a plane crash while attempting to bring aid to earthquake victims in Nicaragua, Garth made a promise that he would do something in baseball. In 1999 Teammates For Kids was created with the support of 67 Major League Baseball players and now with Garth wearing the black and gold of Pittsburgh, "it brings it full circle".

For the fifth season in a row, Teammates For Kids presented a grant to the Chicago Fire Foundation P.L.A.Y.S. Program on behalf of the Chicago Fire players who partnered with Teammates throughout the year. The Chicago Fire Foundation P.L.A.Y.S. (Participate, Learn, Achieve, Youth Soccer) Program is committed to enhancing the academic performance and development of key social and emotional skills of elementary school students through a sports-based curriculum. Created in partnership with World Sport Chicago, it teaches not only soccer skills, but also character traits and values such as emotional control, goal setting and attainment, cooperation, respect, communication, and teamwork that are tied to academic success. As students learn these values within the structure of an athletic activity, they apply them in the classroom and improve both their behavior as well as their academic outcomes. Research has shown that more than 86.5% of P.L.A.Y.S. participants reported that they learned how to be better students because of this program, and more than 85% reported that they make more healthy choices. Click here to check out a video that highlights the program. P.L.A.Y.S. has drawn high marks from community leaders, including Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel, who said, "By teaching our children the skills of teamwork, focus, discipline, and overcoming adversity - you are teaching them the skills they need for success in life." P.L.A.Y.S, which began in 2013, has seen more than 140,000 hours of soccer played by more than 500 youth in grades 3-5 in 22 Chicago Public Schools throughout Chicagoland.

The Zone staff and volunteers spent two days decorating every inch of the space, filling it with snow-capped trees, twinkling icicles, and wintery magic!

One teen shared that she did not feel comfortable going to her own high school prom, but she couldn't wait to come to the Zone Prom to reconnect with her friends from camp or past hospitalizations. All of the youth who attended had a fantastic time dancing the night away under the wintery stars and posing in multiple photo booths. Everything about the night was perfect except for the end, when the kids had to leave. Many of them exchanged social media contacts and will surely keep in touch all year until Prom 2019!
