West Columbia, SC – Wearing a panda onesie, and playing upbeat music from a speaker, East Point Academy P.E.Coach, Elease Anderson, surprises students from a safe distance on their birthdays.

One such student was 10-year old Lilly Wilson, “I was so surprised to see Coach Anderson!…When she started dancing I could not stop laughing! I loved it so much!”.

Lilly’s mom, Katie, was grateful for the visit as she was struggling to make the day special. “Turning 10 is a pretty big deal…COVID-19 took the ability to have a birthday party with friends, but Coach Anderson to the rescue!..she is an amazing person with a heart of gold for these children.”

Kayela Greene was also feeling helpless amidst her daughter’s birthday disappointment.

At 5 years old, it was difficult for Lilo to understand why everything was canceled. “She was very upset…Coach Anderson came to sing to Lilo from the street in front of our house. Lilo was so excited; her visit absolutely made her day” Greene recounted.
