Aggie Athletes Help Community over WeekendSeptember 26, 2011
LAWTON, Okla.—Cameron University athletes helped to serve the Lawton/Ft. Sill community this weekend by lending their time and services to two different area events.
The Aggie baseball team volunteered at the Greater Lawton Rotary Club track meet, which is an event the team has continuously supported for the past several years. The players helped keep time, measure long jumps and measure softball tosses among other things.
Additionally, several athletes belonging to other Aggie athletic programs lent a helping hand at the Dirty Dozen Mud Run, the proceeds from which went to benefit the Court Appointed Special Advocate Program. The players assisted at the various obstacles in place at the event, obstacles in which many CU athletic staff members were participants.
Last year, Cameron student-athletes completed a record 3,026 hours of community service. The athletes are working to set a higher record this year.
