It's Sunday afternoon and my weekend has been filled with volunteering and community service!
Yesterday was a Duck Country game for the Women's Soccer Team. Duck Country, if you didn't know, is a pep-rally like event that every sport has once during regular season. My job for this game was to take attendance for the game and judge the most spirited teams. Most spirited clearly went to the women's basketball team! They wore outrageous cowboy outfits! Another great fact is the Men's Soccer Team had 100% attendance.
Later that night, the field hockey team along with the women's soccer team decided to run clinics at an event called Light the Night. It is on Pier A in Hoboken and is a walk to raise money for leukemia. The track/cross country team and Alpha Phi Omega was also there to volunteer with the walk. It was a beautiful sight to see; people walked along the pier with lit balloons (red balloons for supporters and white for survivors). I wish I could have taken a picture, but it was too dark outside and I couldn't get a good shot, unfortunately.
This morning, the field hockey team, women's lacrosse team, women's basketball team, and APO volunteered and/ or ran in a 5k in the city called Tunnel To Towers. The run is in memorial of a firefigher who lost his life in 9/11 after running through the Battery Tunnel in his full fireman equipment (ON HIS DAY OFF FROM WORK!) It is always a beautiful run.... it is a great tribute to Steve Sellers. The only negatives were the fact that we had to leave Hoboken by 6:45 am to get there and that it rained. But the benefits of the run COMPLETELY outweigh those slight drawbacks.
