Women's Cross Country Helps Community
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Although the Indiana women's cross country student-athletes spend most of their time going to classes, track/cross country practice and doing homework, among other things, the team found time to take a break from the daily rigors from running and was able to get out in the community.
With a day off school on Jan. 17, 2005, Martin Luther King, Jr. day, most school goers both elementary all the way through college, would normally enjoy a nice relaxing day, while also having a great time and enjoying what the afternoon brought them. That is exactly what the Indiana women's cross country team did; however, they didn't spend their afternoon at home relaxing. Instead they went to a food shelter and to lend a helping hand for those in need.
Head Coach Judy Wilson and her squad thought it would be a good idea to volunteer somewhere since the student athletes on the women's cross country team had a day off from classes. Therefore, the team went to help at a local food shelter. While there, the team helped prepare bags for a food drive coming in April. In addition, they sorted cans of food that people had donated.
The Hoosiers will continue to be involved in the community throughout the remainder of the season.
