While we congratulate the winners, this event was about much more than winning. Teaming Up for Kids is a showcase for youngsters and adults to engage in the spirit of athletic competition and demonstrate positive community involvement. We would like to thank the Community Foundation of Elkhart County for their sponsorship of Teaming Up for Kids as well as Concord Community Schools, Elkhart Community Schools and the media for helping to get the word out.

Planning is already underway for next year’s event and we hope to include additional school systems in Elkhart County for greater participation. What a great way to celebrate the holidays together!
