Match of the Month: MJ and Josh

< Back to blog list

February 14, 2019

MJ is a warm, friendly, athletic, and spirited 9-year old boy who has a contagious smile and loves to play sports.

Josh is a warm, friendly, athletic, and spirited 27-year old young man who has a contagious smile and loves to play sports.

MJ and Josh are ambitious competitors who share a true love for the game, whether that’s football, basketball, or trampoline dodgeball. The pair have gotten along wonderfully since their match introduction in May of 2018 when MJ boldly claimed he could run faster than Josh…who is a bonafide track star.

In their first 9 months together, they’ve enjoyed countless laughs and had great fun together at several Sports Buddies events including the trampoline park, Jeopardy, basketball, flag football, longboarding, fishing, Silly Olympics, and Golf Buddies. In Josh, MJ has a role model he can look up to and aspire to emulate.

And maybe, just maybe, through continued hard work, he’ll be able to run faster than his track star Big one day!
