Blog: Gophers Volunteer at Big Brothers Big Sisters Event

| No TrackBacks
The Golden Gophers' fall golf schedule is over, and they will not be competing again until February, but they have still been keeping busy. In addition to practice and school work, the team has also taken some time to volunteer. On Dec. 2, the Gophers were at the Metrodome for the annual Big Brothers Big Sisters Holiday Party. Read Jackie Shepherd's account of the event below:

About 350 kids ages 7-12 from the Twin Cities area participated. There were various activities set up from them to do on the Metrodome field, such as moon bounces, face painting, flag football, bowling, kickball, and a mini golf course.

We were in change of the kickball game (we found out the athletic ability, or rather the lack of athletic ability, that our team possesses outside of golf) and the mini golf course. At the end of the night each kid was surprised with a new bicycle as a Christmas gift from Big Brothers Big Sisters. It was fun to see the kids get excited about the bikes.
