SHAWNEE – Oklahoma Baptist women's lacrosse volunteered at Children's Hospital Colorado in Denver Wednesday while on their annual Spring Break road trip.
The Lady Bison interacted with children during the afternoon in a meet and greet. OBU student-athletes also assisted in arts and crafts projects.
"I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve the communities that we get to play in. These children are such a gift and their everyday strength is inspiring. I love that OBU lacrosse gives us these opportunities to love on people," said senior attack Maysn Ungerer.
Children's Hospital Colorado was established in 1908 to treat children of all ages and at all stages of life. The hospital sees and treats more child patients than any hospital in a seven-state region and provides cutting edge treatments.
"I think it's important to go out and help the community," said freshman goalkeeper Olivia Ward. "Going to a children's hospital is especially important to me because my sister battled two rounds of cancer there. So knowing what a lot of these kids are going through is hard but I'm so glad we could help brighten their day."
OBU will face No. 13 Regis Thursday afternoon in Denver and stay in the area for a matchup with Johnson & Wales Friday.
