More Dolphins In The Community
If there’s one thing football players enjoy more than the game itself it’s bowling, which is why so many Miami Dolphins players jumped at the chance to go bowling with a group of deserving kids.
“I love kids, I love doing community work and I love to give back,” said Dolphins running back/kick returner

For some of the kids, this was their first time ever in a bowling alley so they were taking in the sights and the sounds. The players helped give them tips on how to properly roll the ball down the lane, but the bonding experience between the two groups was special to watch.
“Sometimes these organized field trips and these partnerships are the only chances that they’re ever going to have to do something like this,” said Mark Zaher, Director of School Operations for Miami-Dade schools. “Every event that we have it amazes more and more how much the Dolphins, not just from the management and foundation size, but from the football side are participating. We’re getting more and more players committed and many of these players have come from the same communities that these kids are from, so they’re paying back. It really sends a positive message.”

“It feels great,” Miller said. “The kids are out here having a good time and interacting with the players and just having a good time.”
And that, ultimately, is what it was all about.
