“We’re out here in the community helping out. It’s a lot of fun. Spending time with my teammates has been the most memorable moment of the day,” Dolphins fourth-round draft pick Kalen Ballage said. “It’s a great atmosphere that I’ve been in since I’ve been down here. Being in the community behind these guys and being able to help in any way possible is great for me.”
This marks the fourth time the 2018 rookie class has been active in the South Florida community since arriving in early May. Today’s project with Rebuilding Together Broward also marks the fourth time a Dolphins rookie class has worked with the nonprofit over the years and is part of a multi-year relationship with the Dolphins and Rebuilding Together.
“We want to thank the Dolphins organization and the players today for helping us make such in impact at Archways,” Rebuilding Together Operations Manager Jason Mann said. “One of the great pleasures we have here at Rebuilding Together Broward is the opportunity to work alongside organizations such as Dolphins to make an impact in our community. We’ve enjoyed our working relationship with the Dolphins over the years and look forward to working with them in the future.”
