Mayors Bowl - Baltimore, MD April 26, 2013
As part of the traditional Super Bowl bet, the mayors wagered a day of service in their opponent’s city. The winning city’s mayor got the opportunity to host the service project, so Mayor Lee traveledl to Baltimore to revitalize vacant lots, renovate a police station, and read to third graders at an area school.
Wendy Spencer, CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency for volunteering and service that oversees AmeriCorps and Senior Corps; Joe Briggs of the NFL Players Association; and Navarro Bowman of the San Francisco 49ers joined the service activities. Kate Raftery, the director of AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps, which recently announced the opening of a training campus in Baltimore, also participated.
