The Earth is the only planet that we have been blessed to live on, and once the environment completely deteriorates, that will be the end for humans. So many people don't understand how important one person's impact is on helping the planet, but combined, it can be incredibly influential. Helping clean the rock creek part is something that is so simple, and helps to beautiful the great city that we call home as well as decreasing environmental pollution.
My team took part in a Unified kickball tournament in the fall, and it was one of the most special experiences that I have ever been a part of. Helping set up for this flag football championship, so that these kids can experience this game and this feeling of teamwork is absolutely awesome. I can't wait to help out again sometime soon.
Getting the chance to help athletes during a small portion of their recruiting process. I remember how stressful the recruiting process was for me, so I'm glad I have been able to help these kids out for a few hours.
Being an athlete, I know how hard it can be to run a big athletic event. I was happy that I was able to help out with the little things that are crucial to making the entire event run smoothly. They were mostly small jobs, but in the end they made an important impact.
I helped with the tailgate at the Vern for the lacrosse and softball games. Being an athlete at the Vern, it is always nice to see people coming to help out and bring supporters to games. It was nice to be apart of the fan section at the vern for once, and giving my time to volunteer and help out was great as well.
Helping with the GW section of the American Cancer Association was a great experience. Seeing s many people rally together for an event that supports such a good cause is really amazing. I will definitely be participating again next year.
This was one of the most amazing experiences that I have ever been apart of. Watching all of those kids who are physically or mentally less fortunate than us having so much fun and being active is incredible. I definitely want to find more special Olympics events to help out with.
Helping kid's move into their college dorm's can be stressful. Our objective was to make this process less taxing for the families who presumably have a lot of things to worry about at those times.
I know that moving in can be a hassle, especially if there are a million kids trying to get their things together and bring this to their rooms all at once. That's why I feel it was a good contribution for me and my team to take part in. We helped student and their families move in and bring their items from their cars to their new dorm rooms. Hopefully that made their move-in-day a lot less stressful!
