STRATFORD, Conn. – Members of the Southern Connecticut State University women’s cross country/track and field team volunteered at the second annual Victoria Soto 5K run on Saturday. The group assisted with a variety of duties, including setup, course marshalling and medal distribution.
This event is just one example of many community outreach events that SCSU student-athletes will take part in during the 2014-15 academic year as part of the Tim Greer Insurance Agency Community Service Cup.
Initiated in September, 2008, the ‘Community Service Cup’ program provides a competitive format that allows student-athletes to gain an enriched experience through engagement with the on-campus and local communities by supporting ventures of traditional citizens, campus community members and peer students and student-athletes. SCSU student-athletes volunteered nearly 4,000 hours of their time to numerous outreach efforts, both on-campus and in Greater New Haven, during the 2013-14 academic year.
