The movie together with a very convincing presentation, the REACH Foundation granted the Go Girls! program $5000!!!

Josh & Matt
Josh (LB) and Matt (BB) have been matched since February 2010 and continue to get together on a weekly basis.
In the past 4 years they have shared lots of fun experiences such as playing dodge-ball, football, going to the movies with Josh’s girlfriend and Matt’s wife, honing their golfing skills and engaging in friendly competition at Playdium.
Regardless of what they are doing there is always food involved and the topic of football is always discussed. Matt tries to make it out to Josh’s football games weekly and when he misses a game, Josh has someone tape him playing and they watch it together afterwards to talk technique.Matt is Josh’s number one fan and even wears a jersey with Josh’s last name on it at his games.
Josh joins Matt and his family at Christmastime and other special holidays and has even tried helping Matt with renovations around the house. They are so much more than a Big and Little Brother match, they are true friends!
